As Governor Newsom rolls out the “phased” plan to reopen California, local leaders are working diligently to open up business here in Monterey County. Recognizing health and safety as the #1 priority, there are required operational changes that must be made in order to reopen.

Learn more about industry “checklists” that must be completed for childcare facilities, construction, agriculture, hospitality, real estate, retail, auto dealers, office buildings, and more.

Speaking on key industries for Monterey County in the webinar include:

Small Business: Paul Farmer, President & CEO – Salinas Valley Chamber of Commerce
Hospitality: Rick Aldinger, General Manager – Big Sur River Inn
Agriculture: Norm Groot, Executive Director – Monterey County Farm Bureau

CA Checklists: Cindy Merzon, Director – Cal Coastal Small Business Development Center

We hope you will join us this Friday!
