Hello from the desk of the Alliance! It’s another spring day here in Northeast Kentucky. I have a few things to share with you today. The Alliance is open every day for your business. We keep one person in the office at a time, while the rest of the staff is working diligently from home. We are here to make the issues you never thought you’d have to think about go a little easier. Each day we have found a way to help at least one business navigate this new normal and make their way forward.

We have also started receiving the applications for our Youth Leadership program. Later this summer, Community Leadership will start taking applications, as well.

Our world will continue after the restart of our economy. We continue to place the information of the day in one location for you on the Alliance web page and we are working with all of our partners on what a business restart plan will look like for the region.

I hope all of you are staying healthy and spending this time in a way that will make ourselves better people down the road. We hope you enjoyed Mother’s Day. Please stay tuned for important information and assistance from the Alliance and our partners. We appreciate you and your business.

Together this too shall pass.
