The Webster Chamber of Commerce now has a website page specifically focused on resources and links for Chamber members who are dealing with the economic impact of the regulations and restrictions put in place that affect businesses and their employees. Please check this website page regularly as we will update it as factual information becomes available. We realize that many businesses and employees are now struggling and will continue to struggle with the financial impact of the current situation in New York State, the United States, and the world. We also recognize that this impact may result in businesses failing and closing their doors for good. We will limit the links and resources to those we believe are current, accurate, and available. Pending legislation or government action may be listed as a potential future resource and will be noted as such. If you are aware of a resource or possible resource you think will be helpful to other members of the Chamber, please email us at the Chamber.
