Numbers are critically important to tell the collective story of the COVID-19 virus impact on our business community locally. Right now, everyone is acting on assumptions. Our numbers help detail the reality for decision makers.

As a business executive, we would very much appreciate your input. It will take about 10 minutes to complete the survey. Your responses are absolutely confidential. Responses will only be reported in aggregate.

The aggregate results of this survey will be used to inform local and state elected officials, government agencies, and others of the economic and human impact of the COVID-19 virus here. This survey is part of a national effort by local economic development organizations and chambers of commerce. It will be conducted several times as things are changing quickly.

If you ask for help at the end of the survey, members of Itasca Economic Development Corporation staff will reach out to you personally as soon as possible.

Thank you for your support!Thanks for your support!
