“Hosted by the Greater Issaquah Chamber of Commerce in collaboration with the chambers of Sammamish, Mercer Island, Newcastle, and Snoqualmie Valley, the Sept. 10 event invited numerous Eastside-area business leaders to share insights and experiences via presentations and panel-style breakout sessions. COVID-19 was the unofficial theme of the event. All conversations in some way acknowledged, if not entirely revolved around, the virus’s effect on the regional business community. ”

“2020 turned out to be one of the greatest years we anticipated…then COVID hit,”  [Kathy] McCorry said at the beginning of the event. “It’s been six months, and here we are not only experiencing a pandemic but what will be perceived as one of the largest paradigm shifts the world has ever known…today, we’re writing a new business culture.”
