COVID19 Resources

As COVID-19 continues to have an increasingly significant impact on the business community across the country, we are compiling resources that may help our members during this time of uncertainty. Thank you for taking care of yourself, your employees and your community. We are grateful for your support of our region through your investment in the Chamber.

Please note that as of March 19, 2020, the Chamber office will be closed to the public but we are open for business. We will continue to serve our members, and provide support as we work together during this challenging time. Your Chamber team will be available via email and phone, and we ask you to reach out with any questions or concerns that you may have.

"At the Danville Pittsylvania County Chamber of Commerce, we are continuing to work hard on your behalf. Whether in person or remotely, we are the convener of leaders and influencers, and the champion for an innovative, profitable business community. Right now we are being challenged to learn new ways to conduct business, to develop networks and together weather this uncertain time. Please know that, with our members in mind, we are working to connect you to resources for your business and your employees and advocating for tools to help you rebound as fast as possible."
