Rowlett Chamber of Commerce response to COVID-19

The Rowlett Chamber of Commerce is closely monitoring the reports of COVID-19 in the area and is taking precautions for all of our events and meetings. As of Tuesday, March 17, 2020 the Chamber is remaining open even while most staff are working from home.

“Rowlett is open for business,” said Michael Gallops, president of the Chamber. “The Chamber is here to support the Rowlett business community and that includes identifying ways to help reduce the risk to the public. We want and need Rowlett businesses to stay open. However, during this time we feel the need to postpone some of our programs and focus on finding resources and information to the Rowlett business community.”

The following events will be postponed and rescheduled at a later date unless otherwise noted.

  • March Monthly Luncheon
  • Make a Connection Networking (through April 3, 2020)
  • Friday Night Live
  • GEMS Professional Women’s Group Bunco Night
  • Rowlett Young Professionals April Monthly Meeting
  • GEMS Professional Women’s Group April Monthly Meeting

Any registration for paid events will be honored at the rescheduled date. Refunds will be honored as well if requested.

Also, in an effort to share as much information as we can to prepare and educate, not just our members, but our surrounding community, the Chamber has created a source on our website for the latest information. Also, information is being provided on all the Chamber’s social media platforms including Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter. The website is www.rowlettchamber.com/coronavirus.

The Rowlett Chamber encourages the public to diligently practice preventative actions and to follow the guidelines and restrictions directed by the City of Rowlett and Dallas County. Washing hands, social distancing and staying home when sick are the best methods to combat this and other viruses.
