Greater Newport Chamber of Commerce  Business Outreach

The Greater Newport Chamber of Commerce ~ Business Outreach will be hosting two town hall meetings and two targeted discussions in the next few weeks to hear directly from businesses, support organizations, and any stakeholder who wants to share their experiences. Please feel free to share these with others who might like to participate in the discussion.

Small Business Supports Town Hall - April 28, 2021, 8-9am (RSVP)
We are interested in hearing from businesses and organizations that have been supporting them this past year. As we look forward, we want to explore: 
            • How might we support small businesses during recovery and provide tools for longer-term resilience? Some suggestions have included:
                    o Providing business assessments and tools to strengthen
                    o Supporting capital access needs - more grants, flexible funding
                    o Making it easier to do business in the region
            • What else should we be considering?
Workforce Town Hall  - May 7, 2021, 12-1pm (RSVP)
We are interested in hearing from employers, organizations helping people return to work and training providers. As we assess our community needs, we want to explore:
            • How might we identify and address the gaps that people are experiencing in the existing programs or services for displaced workers?
            • How might we support regional talent attraction needs/ opportunities for those businesses that are hiring
            • What else should we be considering?
