MORRIS -The Grundy County Chamber of Commerce & Industry joins the initiative Chambers All In for Economic Recovery for its second year. Chambers All In for Economic Recovery is a collaboration of chambers across Illinois.
The coalition calls on the Illinois Legislature to prioritize economic and regulatory relief for Illinois’ businesses. It is the mission of all chambers to support our respective business communities and help ensure that businesses can thrive for years to come.
Last spring, Chambers All In for Economic Recovery launched its inaugural platform. The coalition releases its updated platform for 2022. As part of the Grundy Chamber, the Channahon Minooka Chamber are also a part of the All In platform.
If enacted, the coalition identified a platform that would create a foundation for economic recovery. The platform includes ways to help diminish the financial hardships businesses face amid a labor shortage, spur economic development and recover from the devastating impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Nearly 50 chambers from across the state representing thousands of businesses and hundreds of thousands of employees call for the legislature to champion this platform and provide relief to the business community.
“It is the mission of the Chamber to support our business community and serve as the voice for business. Business have shouldered large burdens created by the ongoing pandemic and we need to work together to get our legislators to provide economic relief to our businesses,” Grundy Chamber President & CEO Christina Van Yperen said.
