CEO Brief

I heard there was a wet but still fabulous Pride weekend! I was in Idaho for my grandmother’s funeral and missed the festival but saw so many pics, and what was clear was what a success the day was and how hard the Nashville Pride board and volunteers worked. Thanks to them all on a great job! I want to thank Lauren and our volunteers for representing the Chamber. We signed up so many of you that are reading this for the first time. Welcome!

 

We celebrated Bi Visibility Day and American Business Women’s Day this week, check out our posts on each. 

 

We have important information on COVID recovery. Don’t miss that information below and help do your part to control these numbers. 

 

Enjoy this cool weather and the start of Fall.
