STATEMENT FROM THE COVINGTON BUSINESS COUNCIL
These unprecedented times call for bold measures in battling the potentially deadly COVID-19 virus. The Covington Business Council Board of Directors today unanimously voted to suspend all of its public meetings until April 25. In addition to holding no public events -- such as CBC Connects, monthly luncheons, Hard Hat Tours, and socials – during this time, all volunteer meetings, such as board and committee meetings, will be held remotely. The CBC staff also will work remotely when possible.
The health and safety of the CBC staff, our stakeholders, and our community is of primary importance. We will continue to monitor phone and email communications in the upcoming weeks to answer questions or provide assistance to our member businesses. And we will keep you apprised of any updates in the coming weeks.
Two excellent resources for more information are from the Centers For Disease Control and from the Commonwealth of Kentucky:
The Covington Business Council’s mission is to advocate for a healthy business climate in Kentucky. Our organization has more than tripled the number of member businesses in the past decade to just over 400. We host over 100 events annually and provide our members access to opportunity and growth.
