Issue #5 | March 2021
From the President's Office
Dear Members, Neighbors, and Friends,
As March approaches, the Spring season will soon be upon us. We look forward to the weeks and months ahead with renewed optimism, and to further our success as we advance the economic footprint in Delaware. Since our launch, we have hosted 23 educational webinars that have been FREE to our members. We have assisted 95 businesses and counting with their DE Relief Grant applications. We have also assisted 43 businesses through our partnership with Customers Bank apply for the PPP loan - that is a total of $1.4 million in loan applications! We closed out February with 37 new members for a total of 203 businesses, and 216 individuals that have trusted us - all while in the middle of a pandemic! Our outlook has never been better.
Thank you to ALL our valued members!!!
As always, we continue our resolve to advance our economic footprint in Delaware, and our commitment to our members has never been stronger.
