As state and county shelter in place health orders are modified and in support of the City of Oakland's Economic Recovery Advisory Council, the Chamber is convening businesses looking to reopen with modified restrictions to engage in conversation about best practices, ask questions, and share information. These informal gatherings will initially begin with four business sectors: restaurant/coffee shops, retail, manufacturing, and personal services. County and state orders are expected to evolve quickly, as will the content and speakers of these conversations. If you’re interested in participating, please fill out this form. Space is limited to facilitate easy dialogue but information will be shared afterwards. This information will be shared with the Economic Recovery Advisory Council during their meetings to ensure broad input.

Our first discussions will be held on:
Thursday, May 21st at 10AM for Retail
Friday, May 22nd at 10AM for Restaurants

Due to our community's outpouring of support, the Oakland Chamber's Week of Gratitude has now grown to Meaningful May because it was impossible to thank in just one week our many businesses and residents who are making a difference everyday in Oakland.
Today we would like to thank Chamber member Argent Materials, part of the #EastOakland business community for stepping up to support the Community Kitchens initiative.

Now more than ever, it is important to take the time to express gratitude as we work together to mitigate the impact of COVID-19. While we are all adapting to the changes brought upon us, we want to show our appreciation to individuals and organizations who are continuing to support Oakland.

We kindly invite you to participate in the Chamber's Week of Gratitude starting on Monday, May 11th. We will end the week on Friday, May 15th with the East Bay Women in Business Thank You Project Fundraising Event featuring Nancy Davis Kho, author of The Thank You Project: Cultivating Happiness One Letter of Gratitude at a Time. For every registration, 50% of proceeds will go to Community Kitchens Oakland, a program that distributes food to vulnerable communities while supporting local restaurants.

We hope you will join us on social media to collectively express our gratitude and continue to build our resilience together while apart. Don't forget to use the hashtags #weekofgratitude and #thankyouoakland 🙏

Alameda County issued a new Shelter-in-Place order today that allows construction activity to resume with strict social distancing and safety protocols. The Chamber was proud to lead the Bay Area-wide effort with our business and labor partners to advocate for the safe resumption of much-needed construction. California’s housing crisis is a public health crisis. We applaud the Bay Area’s public health officials for their heroic actions in flatting the curve of COVID-19 and for their thoughtful roadmap toward reopening. #OAKProud #OaklandFromHome #HomeIsWhereTheHeartIs #StaySafe
