Dear <<First Name>>,
Hope You Attended Our Mission San Jose Chamber ZOOM Meeting
Did you attend our first ever ZOOM Meeting? How things have changed since our founding in 1909! We are so grateful for our City Officials to join us and to share their insights on what lies ahead for Fremont and Mission San Jose as we emerge from COVID-19. With a new purpose of aiding businesses in recovery,
a Fremont Recovery Task Force has been formed to continue the economic resources being provided, address safety procedures/regulations, provide training programs for new business development, and continue marketing and promotional efforts. Short term goals include
developing a protocol booklet and supply kit for businesses while continuing to share economic resources. Additionally, the team will be looking at guidelines for hiring and helping businesses pivot for new norms. Stay tuned for more information coming from your MSJ Chamber, as the Task Force is depending on Fremont's local business associations for getting the word out. If you couldn't attend the meeting on ZOOM, click HERE for a recording. Password: 3k=YLH@&
