March 14th Statement on the Vernon Chamber Citizen of the Year Event
After careful monitoring of the Coronavirus Disease outbreak (COVID-19) and taking a proactive approach to follow the recommendation of local, state and federal authorities on travel restrictions and meetings of large groups, Vernon Chamber of Commerce has made the conscious decision to reschedule the March 24th Corporate Citizen of the Year Awards Dinner.
While the reported number of novel Coronavirus cases across the Southland is currently relatively small (as of March 12) - Los Angeles County: 32 confirmed cases, and Orange County: 6 cases (4 confirmed, 2 presumptive), there is no greater importance than to protect the health, safety, and well-being of our invited guests, families and friends.
In agreement with our Honorees, the rescheduled Corporate Citizen of the Year Event will take place:
Thursday, September 17, 2020
Jonathan Club, Downtown Los Angeles
Vernon Chamber will continue to monitor the outbreak and be engaged in preventative measures and outbreak preparedness for Vernon employers and their employees over the next 30-90 days.
We appreciate the ongoing support of sponsors and invited guests who remain committed to help honor the Sweetener Products and Ron Gustafson / Coast Packing families for their incredible citizenry and support of local communities.
We look forward to regrouping to honor our Citizens in a proper, healthy and joyful fashion on September 17th.
