Advocacy is one of the Greater KW Chamber of Commerce’s four pillars and we have been proud to advocate on behalf of the business community throughout COVID-19 as we hear about challenges and concerns that businesses face. If you have any questions, concerns, or are experiencing challenges related to COVID-19, please contact Art Sinclair, Vice President of Public Policy and Advocacy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition to our own advocacy efforts, the Greater Kitchener Waterloo Chamber of Commerce is also a member of Business and Economic Support Team of Waterloo Region (BESTWR). This initiative is a partnership between the Waterloo EDC, the Greater Kitchener Waterloo Chamber of Commerce, Communitech, the Cambridge Chamber of Commerce, as well as all seven area municipalities in our region. The goal of BESTWR is to help all types of local businesses cope with the challenges caused by COVID-19. The most recent op-ed written by BESTWR, Complacency the next pandemic enemy, was published in The Waterloo Record on May 2, 2022.
