President's Report

April 3, 2020

Please Read This One Each week I use this piece as a method of sharing the activity of the Alliance and how we can serve your business. There is no way around that this is uncharted territory for our local business community. But this week has given me faith. It has shown me that collectively—United We Stand. There are new commodities for standard methods of business operations. It’s nearly impossible to buy a laptop, web cam, microphone, and stables such as hand sanitizers. They are incredibly hard to find. Just yesterday in a matter of an hour I had two Alliance members reach out to us for completely different needs. When we connect we’re able to assist the other for the operation of their businesses. We can collectively make a difference. We can together get through this.  Thursday night I was on a conference call with Kentucky Economic Development Cabinet. They are under direction of Governor Beshear to help the state of Kentucky source all of the personal protective gear that is needed now and that will be needed in the near future. Kentucky is competing with 49 other states and every other country for PPG for its residents. Governor Beshear is wanting Team Kentucky to help manufacture and supply raw materials to those that can make what we need to protect ourselves. This is an opportunity for your business to help win this war. Complete this form below if you have any supplies or services to support Kentucky's COVID-19 response. This is a high calling for each of us.
