We’re in this Together

Business View – May/June 2020 / Publisher’s Note
Bill Sisson, President & CEO, Mobile Area Chamber of Commerce


Bill SissonThe global health pandemic COVID-19 coronavirus became far more real to south Alabamians in March, when the first cases were detected in Alabama. Since then, much has changed for all of us as we adapt to different ways of doing business and working to protect ourselves, our families, our companies and our community. One thing is certain: we’re all in this together, and together we will make it through the short- and long-term effects of the virus.


At the Mobile Area Chamber, it has been amazing to see how businesses – both small and large – have stepped up over the past weeks to take care of their employees, figure out how to work remotely where possible and re-evaluate normal procedures and business protocols during these challenging times.


We appreciate your membership in the Chamber. Our entire Chamber team has been tirelessly focused on helping the business community navigate the changes. We are also working to connect businesses to relief funds available at the local, state and federal levels. With lightning speed, the Chamber created a COVID-19 page on our website to provide up-to-date and accurate information and links to resources as they become available. You can count on your Chamber to continue to help you navigate these fast-moving waters.


The Mobile Bay community is resilient, as is our strong business community. And while none of us yet knows the future beyond COVID-19, if we work in unison, we’ll have the right ingredients to make us stronger on the other side.
