SPW goes Virtual

Posted by: Nicole Stephenson on Wednesday, March 25, 2020 at 11:27:00 am

The Main Line Chamber of Commerce knows that communicating and connecting with our members remains important throughout this time. When news of limiting in-person experiences surfaced, we immediately began looking for a solution to remain actively engaged with our staff and community. We also began developing strategies that would provide member companies and individuals with help and support.

The Chamber invested resources into the Zoom platform to host meetings and webinars. We also wanted to be sure that we were able to provide high quality programs by enlisting the help of other members for our audio, visual and photographic needs for high profile events. Our first ever live virtual Society of Professional Women event on Thursday, March 19th featuring author and historian Robin Gerber, provides a model for other organizations seeking to provide valuable and inspiring content.

In order to maintain the important networking component and continue bringing people together, we offered registrants a chance to review the attendee list and select an individual for an introduction to be invited to a 15 minute conversation with one another. At a time when so many events are being canceled for good reason, we believe our pilot program will lead to more opportunities to connect people with knowledge and inspiration as part of The Main Line Chamber of Commerce's overall strategy to serve our members through the COVID-19 crisis. 

The Chamber will continue to provide productive and innovative experiences throughout this time. Now more than ever, our mission of connecting our members with business, leadership development and talent is vital to the strength and recovery of our region. Please know that the Chamber team is working remotely and intensely.
