Kent Chamber of Commerce to move January events to Zoom

Moving away from in-person gatherings due to COVID-19

Due to the new variant surfacing and resurgence of COVID-19 cases in King County, the Kent Chamber of Commerce announced it has decided to move away from in-person events for the month of January.

The State of the Chamber luncheon will still be from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 6 but as a Zoom event, according to a Dec. 22 Chamber email.

Chamber leaders will recap the milestones of 2021 and prepare you for 2022. You’ll hear from CEO Zenovia Harris and 2021’s outgoing President Julia Atwood.
