Events & Fundraisers Committee
Alameda Coalition for Personal Care Services
COVID-19 has created many challenges for all of us, but personal care service providers such as masseurs, beauticians, nail techs, barbers, stylists, and others face unique issues and challenges as a result of closure orders. This group is designed to discuss and address the issues and challenges facing these industries. It's a forum to exchange best practices as well as organize ideas and solutions to help with reopenings and recovery.
Alameda Restaurant & Bar Coalition
With COVID-19 and shelter-in-place orders, restaurants and bars face unique issues and challenges including capacity limits. Nationally, they estimate that as many as 25% of all restaurants will never reopen. The purpose of the group will be to discuss the issues and challenges, exchange best practices, and focus on solutions in order to help the restaurant and bar industry thrive.
Young Professionals Group
This group hosts monthly social events designed around the needs of entrepreneurs, innovators, and those beginning their careers with an interest in future leadership.
The mission of the group is to connect, promote, and support local young professionals through social activities, community involvement, and professional development, making Alameda a more desirable place to live for young leaders.
