The Ventura Chamber of Commerce is working hard to continue to provide our members with the access, information and resources needed to weather the Corona Virus Pandemic. Obviously the health and safety of our community, employees and families is of the utmost importance.  

Out of respect for the federal, state and local guidelines and concern for the health and safety of our community, all Chamber events and programs have been cancelled or rescheduled. We urge you to abide by the CDC guidelines and stay safe. (https://www.cdc.gov/ )
The information that we have been receiving has been rapidly changing and very fluid. We are committed to being a resource for our members. Below are some links to critical resources for businesses. I encourage you to investigate the help available based on your specific needs. Please rely on official sources first and foremost.
We will continue to monitor and pass along links to information as it becomes available. In the meantime, should you need assistance, please contact the Chamber directly. If you have assistance to provide, please let us know that as well and we will do our best to match you to those in need.
Together we will survive this and continue to be Ventura Strong!
