2020 Year in Review
Throughout 2020, the Boulder Chamber helped convene city and county organizations in support of local businesses, developed centralized information resources, evolved our networking events and member services for remote and online working conditions, and implemented direct grant support and technical assistance programs. We also advocated for policies that kept essential businesses operating and gave others the flexibility to adjust their operations, all while collaborating with our public health authorities to help protect community health.
