Welcome to the Fort Lee Regional Chamber of Commerce
While we are all practicing "social distancing" and staying home as we've been asked,
we will continue to be your resource portal for business information
See our new pull-down tab above, "Covid 19 Resources" - it provides important links for grants and loans.
Most importantly, Remember we are here for you and we will get through this together!
Dear Members and Friends in the Community,
I don't think any of us could have imagined just a few weeks ago, that most of us would be working from home and that those who aren't are on the frontline saving lives.
After numerous phone conversations with members I think the most difficult issue we are all grappling with at this point, is uncertainty. So much unknown about covid-19, no one having "seen anything like this before," not knowing how long this will last. It is all very unsettling and stressful. I think that the one thing that can be "reassuring" is that we are all facing the same issues. As trite as it sounds on all the TV commercials, it is true that "We are all in this together .... and TOGETHER we will get through this.' Sharing information, staying positive, taking care of ourselves so that we can stay healthy and strong, that is what each of us must focus on right now.
I have been trying to help by getting out as much useful information as possible in daily e-newsletters sent via Constant Contact. I hope they been helpful. If you are a member and have not received the newsletters, please send me an email. I am also happy to add non-members to the list!
Going forward, I will try to use this website to provide reference links, articles on coping (with working from home, staying healthy, dealing with stress) and hopefully sprinkle in some levity to give you something to smile about!
Most importantly, I want you to know that we are here for you! If there is some other way we can help, let me know. If you need to talk, you can still reach me at the office number which will go through to my cell phone. If you have suggestions, send me an email.
Finally, I have set up a zoom account and will be doing a "test meeting" on Friday (March 27th). If that goes smoothly, I will try to to set up other "Networking Groups" for socialization and problem solving. Information will be in my newsletter and on this website, so stay tuned!
Be safe and healthy,
