Where Do We Go From Here?

On May 25, 2020 our nation witnessed a most heinous crime. A Minneapolis police officer knelt on the neck of George Floyd for 8 minutes and 46 seconds. His life was taken from him even after he stated at least 20 times he couldn’t breathe. Even after those who witnessed the event, implored the officer to stop…

Check out this quick update from Doug Smith on the 757 Recovery & Resiliency Action Framework.

Hampton Roads Alliance
Doug Smith, President & CEO of the Hampton Roads Alliance, shares a brief update on the 757 Recovery & Resiliency Action Framework. As you may recall, this framework centers around 10 committees that are each developing action plans specific to their industry or area of focus. Each committee is chaired by regional leaders and industry experts, and collectively comprised of more than 100 volunteer committee members. Each committee also features a young professional/next-gen vice chair and is supported by ODU’s Strome College of Business students. The committees have begun their work and are committed to working together throughout this process to ensure Hampton Roads emerges from the COVID-19 pandemic stronger than ever. The conversations have been candid, engaging and productive. Now, we need your help. Throughout this process, there will be several opportunities for you to get involved and provide your input — the first of which is coming soon. When the third Business Leaders Survey becomes available next week, we need your assistance in completing the survey. This survey will help guide our committees as they push forward in their planning efforts. This wave of the survey also includes many questions recommended by the committees which will aid in the next few phases of their work. We will notify you when the survey is released, but in the meantime you can find the first two waves of the survey and stay up to date on committee progress at www.757recovery.com. Later in September, we will have more opportunities for the public to provide input on these plans. We look forward to and appreciate your participation. To close, COVID-19 has changed the way we live and the way we do business. We are all working hard to understand those changes and the challenges that come with them, but I am confident that through collaboration, our region will come out of this stronger than it was before. Thank you for you continued support and we look forward to hearing your thoughts in the Business Leaders Survey very soon.
