Galesburg, IL -The Galesburg Area Chamber of Commerce joins the initiative Chambers All In for Economic Recovery. Chambers All In for Economic Recovery is a collaboration of chambers across Illinois. The coalition calls on the Illinois Legislature to prioritize economic and regulatory relief for Illinois' businesses. It is the mission of all chambers to support our respective business communities and help ensure that businesses can thrive for years to come.
Last spring, Chambers All In for Economic Recovery launched its inaugural platform. The coalition releases its updated platform for 2022.
If enacted, the coalition identified a platform that would create a foundation for economic recovery. The platform includes ways to help diminish the financial hardships businesses face amid a labor shortage, spur economic development, and recover from the devastating impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Nearly 50 chambers from across the state representing thousands of businesses and hundreds of thousands of employees call for the legislature to champion this platform and provide relief to the business community.
"All during the pandemic, we have seen our community’s businesses being challenged, just like all across the country," said Pam Gaither, executive director at Galesburg Area Chamber of Commerce. "Being part of this statewide coalition brings a stronger presence to legislators in our collective goal to advocate for what businesses need for continued growth forward,” Gaither added.
