Connecting Businesses with Our Community
HELPING OUR COMMUNITY GET THROUGH
We're all in this together and here to support each other through this difficult time.
Update from your chamber president:
”LA VIDA SIGUE” Life Goes On
My father used this expression when he was alive. He would say this after any difficult or painful family situation. I never thought much about his saying, until after he died. It is so true. No matter what situation we find ourselves in, life goes on. We must press forward. Covid-19 will be with us for a while, so we need to learn how to live in this new norm because “la vida sigue.”
As president of the Volusia Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, I am proud to say we are moving forward. We are committed to keeping our members informed and connected. We are getting ready to launch our new website, new pricing, and upcoming events. The Chamber is staying more visible on our social media platforms and bringing awareness to our business members and partners. And, we are offering FREE educational events to our chamber members.
We understand people have different feelings regarding coming out of quarantine. For this reason, we will continue to host virtual meetings. However, we are considering having some live social events. When these events take place, we will be sure to take all the necessary precautions.
In the meantime, stay safe, stay focused and stay positive.
