The California Chamber of Commerce has named the Simi Valley Chamber of Commerce as one of the recipients of the 2020 President’s Circle Award.
The award, first presented in 2009, recognizes chambers for excellence in business advocacy and helping their members comply with California employment laws. The Simi Valley Chamber has received this award every year since 2012.
Normally, the chambers would have been honored and the awards presented during the CalChamber Capitol Summit in Sacramento. With the cancellation of the Summit due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the award recipients were announced during the weekly local chamber legislative conference call.
President’s Circle Award recipients published vote records of their state legislators on key business issues, generated letters to state elected officials on issues of interest to members and participated in the CalChamber compliance product resale program at an exemplary level.
“We are grateful to be awarded the 2020 President’s Circle Award from the California Chamber of Commerce,” said Kathi Van Etten, President & CEO. “It’s truly a testament to the work we do each day to advocate for businesses in Simi Valley.”
The Simi Valley Chamber of Commerce is a business organization with a mission to promote a strong business community. For more information, call 805-526-3900.
County Vaccine Update
Click Here for Ventura County Vaccine Information Portal
As of 1/19/21 31,553 individuals have been vaccinated in Ventura County. The County has received 44,625 first dose vaccines. All appointments are filled this week.
More appointments will be opened next week. A notice will be sent when they open up.
The County has to wait each week on the amount of vaccines provided to the County from the State and then more appointments can be made. All vaccines coming in are going out to the people in Phase 1A and 75 and older. We have more eligible people wanting the vaccine than vaccines available.
It will take months to vaccinate all people. Vaccine supply is the biggest barrier to making this effort move more quickly. This is impacting Counties throughout the State.
Once appointments are opened you can register on the Ventura County Recovers website at the following link:
You can also call their hotline to make an appointment next week. Currently, the hotline has a recording saying all appointments are full. Once more appointments are open an operator will be able to help callers make appointments.
The phone number is: 805-477-7151.
