Welcome to the Southwest Gwinnett Chamber of Commerce
Connect • Engage • Make a Difference
A Message from the Chairman
The leadership team at the Southwest Gwinnett Chamber has continued to support local businesses and nonprofits in our market over the past two months as we all do our best to navigate a challenging new environment. As always, we strive to provide timely and relevant and information and have found new ways to stay connected.
After a couple of weeks off to adjust, Frank Kellert resumed our Friday morning Connect Over Coffee, albeit in a virtual format. We added guest speakers to the format to provide news on current events and discuss ways to meet these completely unforeseen and new challenges.
We are proud to have been able to provide healthy snacks to the frontline healthcare workers at Northside Hospital Duluth.
Meanwhile, the Chamber has continued to expand, adding new members, and we can’t wait to welcome them in person.
We are excited to announce that on Friday, June 5th, we'll be resuming our monthly First Friday breakfasts. However, until it is responsible to meet in person, we'll be holding these events virtually. We hope you’ll join us! In June we are honored to have J. Tom Morgan speak to us.
We will continue to provide updates on assistance programs including the Paycheck Protection Program. The application to apply for forgiveness on those loans was recently released by the SBA and you can find the link below along with other pertinent information.
Thank you for your continued support of the Chamber and please don’t hesitate to reach out to us with your suggestions.
Stay safe until we convene again!
2020 SWGC Chairman
