A Message from:Adriane Johnson, President BGLCCDear Members,
In just a few short weeks, we will welcome summer and continue to reopen our businesses and venture out in our communities. I am deeply inspired by the sense of community and support during the COVID-19 pandemic by all of you. We've collectively responded to this pandemic with aplomb and are poised to rebuild and embrace our "new normal."
A very wise, but anonymous, person said that "Sometimes your greatest hopes are destroyed to prepare you for something better." And I believe that together we will rebuild a vibrant and successful business environment.
The Buffalo Grove Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce will continue to support our members and provide resources, networking opportunities and marketing support to help you thrive. We are so pleased to have reached this point where businesses are able to reopen, while following the guidelines outlined within Phase 3 of Governor Pritzker's Restore Illinois plan.
Thank you for staying connected and for attending the Chamber's virtual networking events and educational programs. Thank, too, for keeping us informed about how your business is doing and how the Chamber can help you.
Stay in touch, stay connected and stay well!
