ADEDC and Chamber partner in business assistance efforts

The Albany-Dougherty Economic Development Commission and Albany Area Chamber of Commerce have partnered to develop and distribute a business assistance and damage assessment survey to better gauge the needs of the local business community in light of the recent storms.

The survey, which can be accessed online here, will serve to help direct the ADEDC and Chamber in securing resources to aid in businesses’ recovery from the effects of the January 2 and January 21-22 severe weather events.

Survey participants are asked to report information such as the location of their business, type of loss suffered, duration and extent of loss and the event after which the loss occurred.

“In our community’s great time of need, we want to be sure our organizations are providing the assistance necessary to ensure the continued prosperity of our business community,” says Chamber President and CEO Barbara Rivera Holmes. “This survey will provide the information we need in order to adequately source the needed resources.”

The survey goes live beginning today and will remain active through noon on February 1, 2017.





The Albany-Dougherty Economic Development Commission is a public-private partnership whose mission is to foster new investment and job creation through the recruitment, retention and expansion of industry for Albany-Dougherty County.

Since 1910, the Albany Area Chamber of Commerce has been the voice of business and professional community. The Chamber is the only membership organization that is totally involved in the growth and development of the community with a pro business emphasis.
