A message from the Alaska Chamber of Commerce:

Thank you for taking our previous surveys on the impacts COVID-19 has had on your business.

A lot has changed since we first surveyed Alaska businesses nearly three months ago. In an effort to continue to capture the rapidly changing impacts of COVID-19 to the Alaska business community, the Alaska Chamber is deploying a short follow-up survey with questions asking your opinion on masking requirements, the biggest hurdles facing your business, and what type of regulatory relief your business may still be seeking.

The information gathered from this survey will be used to advocate for support from state and federal agencies and to provide timely information for ongoing decision-making related to economic recovery. Please take a few minutes to complete our third COVID-19 Economic Impact Survey.

Take the survey

We are trying to capture data from as many businesses in Alaska as possible, regardless of Alaska Chamber membership status. Please forward and share this survey with other businesses who may not have received this email.

The survey will close on Wednesday, July 22nd and results results will be posted on our website as soon as they are available.

Be sure to check out our COVID-19 business toolkit our website, which includes links to recent webinars, information regarding loan programs, and much more.
