CVBIA and COVID-19 Updates and resources

Like other organizations around our area, we are keeping a close eye on the COVID-19 situation and how it is impacting our member companies and their businesses.

Beginning on March 16, CVBIA began sending out Updates containing local, state and national information almost daily, and we will continue to do so as additional information becomes available.  (If you are not receiving these emails, you may want to check your spam filter.)

If you have any questions regarding association activities or need further assistance, please contact Claudia Cotton (305-9061) or Joyce Hearn (305-9047).

Best regards,

Ryan Rose
