MARCH 2021
March 2021 marks a year of the global pandemic. According to the Georgia Department of Health nearly 3.7 million doses of Covid-19 vaccine have been administrated in Georgia and everyone 16 years of age and older is eligible for the COVID vaccine. Although we are still asked to act with caution this gives all of us a light at the end of the tunnel. SACC GA member Metro Atlanta Chamber of Commerce shares great Covid-19 resources and updates on their website.

March is International Women's Month and we celebrated this by hosting a webinar on March 8, International Women's Day, on the topic of Women in Sustainable Business. Sweden ranks number one in gender equality within the EU.

Our members tell us that networking is still an important benefit of being part of a network like SACC GA. We have reached out to several of our top networkers who share tips for networking in this environment where face to face meetings are less frequent. We share these tips in our social media on Wednesdays and you can also find some of them below. I appreciate these members taking the time to share their best practices. As always please reach out to us if there is anything we can do to assist you.

In May we are once again hosting a multi chamber virtual networking event for several regional SACC chambers. Keep an eye out for more information about this networking opportunity. These events are not just a great time but also provide excellent opportunities to network within the large network that SACC provides.

Best Regards,
Ida Pond
Executive Director SACC GA
