The Madison County Chamber of Commerce has announced an online “State of the County” event set for 9 a.m., Thursday, April 16.

Here is a press release from Chamber director Anna Strickland:

We hope that you are making plans to "attend" the 2020 State of the County on Thursday, April 16th at 9:00 am. While we have allotted three hours for the event, it is likely that we will end well before noon.

Due to the recent developments with COVID-19, we will be facilitating this event in an online/conference call format. Please see the details below and don't hesitate to let us know if you have any questions.

Format Update:

• In order to proceed through each report efficiently, this call will not be in a Q&A format. Please send your questions in advance to by Wednesday (4/8) at noon. We will compile the questions and send them to the guest speakers in advance so that they can potentially address your questions in their remarks.

• In order to provide the highest audio quality possible and prevent background noise, please know that all participants’ mics will be muted.

• In the event that your schedule will not allow you to make the call, it will be recorded and posted for you to review at a more convenient time.
