Announcing the first Coastal Corral – Legislative Meet Up for the Entire Coast
The Florence Area Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with coastal chambers including Seaside, Astoria-Warrington, Lincoln City, Depoe Bay, Newport, Waldport, Reedsport-Winchester Bay, Bay Area, Bandon, and Brookings, is excited to bring to the coast its first “Coastal Corral”, Friday May 1st at 10:00am PDT.
Coastal Chambers are convening U.S. and State legislators to update and share information with the business communities along the coast. This FREE online panel conversation will be available on ZOOM and Facebook Live. It will also be recorded for those unable to attend “live”. Quick links to attend the event will be available at FlorenceChamber.com under the events tab the morning of the panel.
As we “Coasties” know, coastal communities face different challenges than other rural areas and vastly different challenges than larger metro areas. Many coastal communities rely heavily on tourism as their primary industry. With social distancing, what does it look like to re-open for business? Restaurants, retail, casinos and transportation sectors all face unknown restrictions and logistics for success. All non-essential businesses that are reopening are looking for additional resources and support.
Join us to hear from our hard-working legislators about what they are doing to support truly “miniature” businesses, along with small and larger employers—and all with a focus on the coast. We are thrilled to announce that U.S. Senators Jeff Merkley and Ron Wyden, along with State Senators Betsy Johnson and Arnie Roblan and State Representatives David Gomberg and Tiffiny Mitchell will be seated in this “Corral” to share knowledge and resources. This dynamic panel will be moderated by Lane Community College’s Florence Campus Dean, Dr. Russ Pierson.
We want to hear from you. Please submit your questions or comments for the panel as soon as possible to firstname.lastname@example.org.
