With summer wrapping up and our attention now redirected to our busy fall season, we can’t help but be proud of the many unique and special events we have planned for you, our members. From a rare opportunity to witness regional leaders discuss decisions that will impact us all at September’s Capital Region Business Forum to honoring our veterans at November’s Distinguished Service Awards, our Chamber events have been carefully curated to bring our members together with content that matters.
However incredible our speakers and topics, we cannot ignore that we are all still living and working through a pandemic. Our members and guests are always our priority, and no event could ever be considered a success if we lost sight of their wellbeing. Therefore, we are taking our cue from government and private entities and will require all staff, members and guests who attend our events to be fully vaccinated from today forward. All attendees will be asked to provide their physical COVID-19 vaccine card, a photo of vaccination card, or Health Pass by CLEAR. For more details please visit our event registration webpages.
It is our sincere hope that limiting attendance to vaccinated persons will put our event attendees’ minds at ease and allow for a more comfortable event environment. We appreciate everyone’s understanding as we implement this change on behalf of our business community. Working together we can ensure a safer future for us all.
