Letter from the Executive Director
Our way of life is changing rapidly, and as we all struggle to wrap our brains around this unsettling time, I want you to know that we are all in this together and that the BWI Business Partnership is here for you!
We truly value each and every one of our members, sponsors, and Board of Director members! We can’t do this without you: if your company is offering services or has helpful information that could potentially benefit our members during these unprecedented times, please share with me or Cate Paris, our Director of Strategic Initiatives, at [email protected] or [email protected], respectively, and we will do our best to help you promote.
At the end of last week, the BWI Business Partnership and other key business organizations sent a letter to the regional Congressional Delegation, insisting that they pass an additional stimulus package for business and workers affected by the Coronavirus. I encourage you to read the letter, which can be found HERE.
