Goleta Chamber to Host Economic Recovery Webinar with Capps

Business owners and employees are invited to participate in Friday's interactive event

The Goleta Valley Chamber of Commerce will offer a Congressional Economic Recovery Webinar with Rep. Lois Capps, D-Santa Barbara, from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Friday.

This special event will allow the congresswoman to hear how local businesses are faring during these tough economic times.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for our members to connect with the chamber, our local congressional representative and the Small Business Administration without leaving the office,” chamber president and CEO Kristen Amyx said. “Congress needs to hear from those in the trenches about the effects of the economy on business. It also gives us the opportunity to showcase one of our largest employers, Citrix Online, using their technology to host the Webinar.”

Business owners and employees are encouraged to log on to the interactive Webinar to hear Capps and Alberto Alvarado, district director of the SBA, Los Angeles District Office, give an update on economic recovery efforts. In addition, a question-and-answer session will allow participants to ask questions via the computer.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
