    Impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on the Onoway & District Chamber

    Like everyone else dealing with the COVID-19 outbreak, the Onoway & District Chamber of Commerce has been significantly impacted.  Here is a summary of the current situation:

    • Our AGM, originally scheduled for April 9, 2020, is postponed for the time being,
    • Meetings of the Board of Directors are postponed until further notice.
    • The Executive Committee has been delegated the authority to make decisions as necessary until the next Board meeting is held, and will keep the Board up to date with any important issues.  
    • Our administrator, Janet (janet@onowaychamber.ca), will be working from home but she will continue to be available by phone (see bottom of this page) and email to respond to member inquiries. 
    • Our very popular Facebook Live series will be paused for the time being.
