Chamber of Commerce Small Business Conference call project to feature Northern Savings Mark Mastroianni as part of today's session

The Prince Rupert and District Chamber is working to keep
local business owners connected during these uncertain times

The latest COVID Conference call hosted by the Prince Rupert and District Chamber of Commerce is set for this afternoon from 3 to 4, streaming through the Zoom platform.

The ongoing project from the Chamber is bringing members together to share information, learn about options and hear more on programs and such that are available to the Business community during these quite unusual times.

Today's guest comes from the financial sector, with Mark Mastroianni, the Business Service Regional Manager for Northern Savings Credit Union, who will be able to help those on the conference call navigate some of the key financial issues for this period.

Today's conference call is the second to last from the original schedule, which so far only goes to the 27th of April.

You can learn more about how the project and how to participate here.

For further information on the project contact Anthony at the Chamber of Commerce at 1-778-281-3348.

Last week Chamber President, Michell Boomars MacNeil provided for an update towards the ongoing collaboration process in place in the region.

I am proud as a Rupertite to witness the many in our community who are stepping up to assist our local businesses with support and initiatives. We thank everyone who is doing their part, from sharing of storefront hours, business shout outs, financial resources and sometimes to just listen. The Prince Rupert & District Chamber has worked hard to create partnerships amongst all levels of business and government, and now these collaborations are imperative and a cohesive approach is essential. The perseverance of all through this crisis is truly a community initiative.

Ms. Boomars-MacNeil also made note of some of the work that the Chamber has taken on during the course of the local pandemic response.

The Chamber has committees that plan and execute on strategies built to support our local commerce activities. I invite individuals who wish to assist during this continuity and recovery planning phase to reach out to us to join a committee. Communications, Strategic Initiatives, Events and Policy committees meet regularly and never has there been a more critical time to share information, knowledge and resources. For other entities out there who also support the development of local commerce and economics we also invite you to contact the Chamber so that we can collaborate and share resources. Many hands make light work and these partnerships are vital to the continuation of business that will be forever changed as a result of this crisis.
