Savannah Area Chamber of Commerce

Note from Chamber President

This holiday season is unlike any other - to cap off a year unlike any other. Throughout this season, and as we move into a new (and hopefully better) year, the Chamber wishes you and your businesses moments of peace amid the difficulties. We hope that the connections with family and friends even if they can’t be in person and the glimpses of an economic rebound on the horizon this holiday season brings you joy. As 2020 comes to a close, our thoughts turn gratefully to our members, volunteers, and dedicated staff that have held the line as we navigated a tumultuous year. Thank you for your continued support. Happy holidays and wishing you a happy and prosperous new year.

Bill Hubbard
