In 2020, as COVID-19 gripped the world, the chamber network in Manitoba responded collaboratively and with urgency. With a mission to promote sustainable economic development, the Chamber network has worked in lock-step across Canada, pushing for the very survival of industry and independent businesses in our local communities.
Join us on April 29th as we hear from Chuck Davidson, President and CEO of the Manitoba Chambers of Commerce (MCC), about 'Building Business Back Stronger' while our economy works to recover during and post-COVID-19.
Manitoba's chamber network is here to help our business community navigate this crisis with resilience. Hear more from Chuck about MCC's work communicating about the critical needs of Manitoba's business community, advocating for meaningful emergency financial relief, and more. You can read Chuck's latest message "A Year in the Life" here.
Chuck's presentation will be followed by a Q&A session.
