Dear Chamber members,

For what we feel is very good local, relevant information, we encourage you to attend the virtual Saint Peter COVID-19 meeting this Friday. Here is the official notification letter from the City of Saint Peter:

The City of Saint Peter and the Saint Peter Chamber of Commerce are hosting the second COVID-19 Business Economic Impact Session at 9:00 a.m. on Friday, March 27. During last week’s session, we were joined by 38 local businesses logging in on their computer or phone. The technology seemed to work just fine. We hope to exceed that number this week as we have room from many more participants.

As with last week, the goal of the session is to share the information that impacts your business and employees. We hope to provide direction to the resources and information available from the local, state and federal agencies as well as our partner organizations. As we expected, things are changing on a day-by-day basis as new programs and services are developed.

This week we plan on talking about the Small Business Administration, Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development and Saint Peter Economic Development Authority loan programs. Nancy Zallek, President/CEO of the Mankato Area Foundation will explain their partnership with the United Way to provide financial assistance to the non-profit businesses in their service area. I’m sure additional information will materialize in the next couple days to help fill the agenda.

We will conclude the virtual gathering with a question and answer session. If we don’t have the answer or information at hand we’ll do our best to get it in time to report at the next Friday session. If you have questions in advance you can send them now to [email protected].
