As we travel down this road of many uncertainties, we want to remind our members and business community that you can be certain of one thing – the St. Pete Chamber team values YOU, your commitment to us, your businesses, and our community.

Our team is eager to lend our services and reinforce the resilience of St. Pete. We invite you join us in this effort by participating in a brief survey to help us understand the impacts of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) on your organization as well as take advantage of our NEW Chamber services as we navigate through this period.

Organizational Status Survey

Please consider taking a moment to answer a few questions to help our Chamber understand the impacts of COVID-19 (coronavirus) on your organization. Your responses will help us provide the best support that we can as we navigate this uncertain time together. All responses will be anonymous unless you choose to provide your name and contact information at the end of the poll.
