As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact the economy, small businesses have been hit hard, with many struggling to stay afloat. In response to this, PUSH Ministry and the Greater Georgia Black Chamber of Commerce (GGBCC) partnered with Congresswoman Lucy McBath, SBA Administrator Isabella Guzman, and Mayor Craig Newton of Norcross to explore ways to support small businesses in our community.
The Round Table discussion was an exceptional opportunity to exchange ideas and best practices that can benefit small businesses, particularly during these challenging times. The discussion focused on several topics, including the need for financial support, access to resources, and strategies for recovery and growth.
We were immensely grateful for the willingness of our representatives to engage with the GGBCC and listen to our perspectives on issues that impact small businesses. It was a privilege to participate in this discussion and contribute to the conversation on how to support small businesses in our community.
The meeting reinforced the importance of collaboration and partnerships in supporting small businesses. It was evident that our representatives were committed to supporting the small business community and taking steps to promote economic development in the region.
Moving forward, the GGBCC looks forward to continuing our partnership with these offices to further our shared goals of supporting small businesses and fostering economic growth. We are thankful for the invitation and the opportunity to collaborate and look forward to working together to support small businesses in our community.
