In consultation with local infectious disease specialists, medical leaders and the Colorado Department of Public Health, we have made the difficult decision to begin postponing and canceling large-scale meetings and events held at the Chamber and elsewhere.
As you can imagine, with the NBA’s decision to suspend its season, the first event affected is the Net90 Nuggets game on March 18. At this time, we are working with the Denver Nuggets to determine whether we can reschedule, and if not, how refunds will occur. We will be in touch with registrants as soon as possible.
The Metro Denver EDC has also decided to postpone its Annual Meeting 2020, scheduled for March 24. They have already reached out to sponsors and registrants to share this news. In the coming weeks, the EDC team will work to identify a new way to both celebrate the 2019 economic gains of our region as well as honor partners and investors. We will keep you updated as those plans materialize.
Committee Meetings and Other Smaller Events
Whenever possible, we will make call-in and web-based options available for smaller events. This includes committee meetings. Staff will be in touch to share information as it’s available.
All of us should continue to explore how we create opportunities for our employees to work from home, via conference line or via webinar, in case public health officials recommend that action in the future
Events like this require everyone to pull together as a community. We will provide regular updates regarding the events schedule in the future.
We look forward to hearing your voice or seeing your face at a virtual meeting, or giving you an elbow bump in person. In the meantime, take the advice of experts and practice social distancing, the new catchphrase of 2020!
Kelly Brough is the president and CEO of the Denver Metro Chamber.
