US Chamber’s Small Business Guide and Checklist for Coronavirus Emergency Loans




As many of you are aware, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act allocated $350 billion to help small businesses keep workers employed amid the pandemic and economic downturn.  Known as the “Paycheck Protection Program,” the initiative provides 100% federally guaranteed loans to small businesses who maintain their payroll during this emergency.  Importantly, these loans may be forgiven if borrowers maintain their payrolls during the crisis or restore their payrolls afterward.

We are working with the US Chamber to provide a Zoom meeting for our chamber executives to make sure you understand all the programs available and can explain them to your member businesses.  Be on the lookout for the date and time soon for our US Chamber update.  To view the funding available for 501c6 organizations, please click here.

Also – don’t forget that we have a COVID-19 page on the VACCE website with local, state, and federal updates as well as websites and samples shared by your VACCE peers:

66th Annual Wise County/City of Norton Chamber of Commerce Silent Auction & Gala 2020

08/15/2020 5:30 pm


Dear Chamber Members and Friends,

After great consideration, the Wise County Chamber has decided to postpone our 66th Annual Chamber Gala and Silent Auction scheduled for Saturday, April 4 2020. We regret any inconvenience that this may cause, but we are responding with great caution to the potential consequences from the spread of the Coronavirus. We feel that in order to create a fun and safe environment it is necessary to move the Gala to Saturday, August 15 at the David J. Prior Convocation Center.
We appreciate all those who have already purchased table sponsorships and tickets as well as donated silent auction gifts. We will be sending out new information on the gala as well as updated tickets.
We appreciate your understanding and look forward to the Gala on August 15.
