An IMPORTANT Message about the Business to Business Networking Matchmaking Event
Dear business partner:
As you are well aware, the world is responding to public health concerns revolving around coronavirus (COVID-19), and we are no exception.
The partnership of the CCIDA, SUNY JCC, Chautauqua Works, and MAST have agreed to follow the procedures and guidelines recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to help eliminate the spread of COVID-19. As it relates to this crisis, we heard from several sponsors and our guest luncheon speaker that they would not be attending the event.
In response to the public health directives to avoid large meetings and close contact with others, we have decided to postpone the Business-to-Business Networking Matchmaking event scheduled for Wednesday, March 18, 2020.
While we stand by the importance of this event, we understand that our local businesses are better served with their decision-makers being present at their organizations to help guide their teams through this challenging time.
At this point, the postponement date is yet To Be Determined. We are most interested in ensuring the health and safety of our communities first, and then we will determine the optimal time to hold this event.
Again, we are planning to reschedule this event for the summer or fall of 2020. In response to this change, here are your options in terms of holding your registration or requesting a refund:
- You may stay registered for this event, and do nothing more at this point.
- You may request a refund for your registration costs. To request a refund, please email Jeanette LoBello at LoBelloJ@co.chautauqua.ny.us. She will process a refund for you. If you choose to re-register later, you will be able to do so.
Thank you for your support of this event; we know it will be extremely valuable for everyone involved. Please watch for updates regarding this event, which we will send via email. Additionally, we will post updates to our Facebook and LinkedIn profiles, so please plan to follow those pages as well.
We look forward to seeing you all soon, when we can talk about business other than COVID-19. Until then, stay well.
