NORTH FULTON, Ga. — Stoked by a widespread surge in coronavirus cases, the Greater North Fulton Chamber of Commerce has stepped up efforts to assist local businesses weather an uncertain economy.

"What I’m hearing from other chambers all over, is that the economy ... is really in the hands of consumer confidence. Are folks ready to get back out there?"

-- Kali Boatright, Greater North Fulton Chamber president

The chamber hosted its first in-person event in three months July 16 at the Chattahoochee Nature Center — outside, of course, celebrating the center’s butterfly exhibit. The Business After Hours event was limited to 50 people, and there was a standby list.

“People are ready to get back to in-person visits,” said Chamber President Kali Boatright. “We want to make sure our business members are confident that if they come to one of our events, that we’re following all the right guidelines and doing all the right things.”
