Chapin Chamber & Coronavirus Updates

The Chapin Chamber continues to monitor the Coronavirus and its impact on our community. Accordingly, we have made the decision to postpone Chamber events through the end of April. As of now, the Chamber will not host Ribbon Cuttings or Lunch & Learns until the last week of April. Our March Member Meeting, sponsored by Comet, is now scheduled for April 30th. The Sip & Stroll, which was scheduled for April 2nd, will be postponed to a later date this year. We are in communication with the host of the leadership seminar with Glenn Shepard which is currently scheduled for April 7th; we will send out additional information should this event be rescheduled.

The Chapin Chamber will remain open during normal business hours; however, we encourage our members and visitors to communicate with the Chamber staff via email and telephone over the next few weeks. We will not be hosting any meetings at the Chamber House through (at least) March, which includes the use by members of our small conference rooms upstairs or the use of our Spring Hill Conference Room.

This is an unprecedented time for our Chapin business community. Please know that the Chapin Chamber is working closely with both our community leaders and business partners to communicate information and seek strategies to assist our businesses to minimize the impact of this pandemic. We will be utilizing social media to inform the community of updates and ways to support our local businesses while still observing the social distancing encouraged by the CDC and SCDHEC. If you are not already following the Chapin Chamber on Facebook and/or Instagram, we encourage you to do so.

As we stated last week, this situation is constantly evolving and information is rapidly being updated by the proper agencies. We advise our members and our community to consider sources and stay up-to-date through the following websites:

SCDHEC:

We are aware that several of our local business owners have implemented proactive ways to address the Coronavirus and the impact on their business. We encourage our businesses to let the Chamber know about the updates and changes in your protocols and we will help share that information to our Chapin community on social media. As we move forward, we implore all of our community to work together and show each other grace, as our small businesses will face a large burden of the economic impact due to this pandemic. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us with questions, concerns, or to let us know how your business is doing. As we continue to practice social distancing, we will look forward to the end of this situation and to seeing you in person again!
