In good times and bad, Chamber is here for businesses

To the editor:

No other organization represents the business community like a chamber of commerce. No other brand is recognized across the globe as an organization fighting for the rights of employers. And, no other group balances the needs of the business community with the needs of the general community like a local chamber of commerce. The Jasper Chamber of Commerce does all of those things right here in your own backyard.

As always, and especially during the past 3 months, the Jasper Chamber tries very hard to communicate the complicated government processes and to protect your rights so you can stay afloat.  We have talked to state officials, federal officials, county and local officials and many other entities  to help spread the word that the economy and public health can bothco-exist and prosper together.

The Jasper Chamber has been your life raft in the troubled waters of COVID-19.  We will continue to communicate with you and will be here again the next time a crisis rolls around. You cannot put a price tag on the value you have been receiving from the Jasper Chamber and our advocacy efforts with the federal, state and local government officials.

Over the years, the Jasper Chamber has worked hard to build relationships with the many community organizations and the public officials.  We are always working to find the right opportunity to showcase our members  and to educate the public on the realities of running a business and providing jobs.

We do all of this for YOU in hopes it will help YOU survive in these trying times.

The road ahead will be the next challenge that the Jasper Chamber is willing to accept to continue to be here for our members and the entire business community and to continue to educate and inform, but not overload or overwhelm.

Our team has been available every day during the past three months, working hard each day to provide assistance as our businesses live with challenges. We work very hard at the Jasper Chamber — constantly trying to think how best to market for our members, advocate for our members and the community and provide networking opportunities.

We will continue to provide guidance and support as the economy comes back to life and people get back to work.
