Spotlight: Business Council Briefs – February 2021

So far, 2021 has proved to be a year of connection at the Greater Williamsburg Business Council.

Through virtual programming, our weekly newsletter, and a Friday Facebook Live series called The Buzz, we are committed to connection.

Our Legislative Affairs Committee hosted the 2021 Legislative Forum, featuring Senator Tommy Norment, Senator Monty Mason, Delegate Amanda Batten, and Delegate Mike Mullin.

Presented by Principle Advantage Government Relations Group, this Forum connected our membership and local legislators concerning our 2021 Legislative Priorities. Did you miss the Forum? You can watch a replay on our blog.

We have also recently updated our COVID-19 Recovery Center, highlighting industry-specific guidelines, webinar replays on PPP Loans and the Economic Aid Act, grant opportunities from DoorDash and Dominion Energy, and vaccination resources organized by locality.

At the Business Council, we want to help you create genuine, professional connections in town. Our next opportunity for networking will be on Wednesday, February 24th at 5:30 PM.

We will be using the Blitzr platform, which allows for high-energy, speed-networking in a virtual environment. You’ll also get a chance to mark the individuals on the list with whom you’d most want to connect!
