Canceled -- Business Expo, Health Fair and Fun Day

After much consideration, the McDonald County Chamber of Commerce has made the decision to postpone our upcoming Health Fair and Business Expo in response to the coronavirus. We plan to reschedule and are asking for a little bit of time as we all stay tuned in to the CDC and government authorities on this issue. Our greatest concern is, of course, the safety and well-being of all. If your business was planning to be a vendor at the Expo, we want to assure you that your registration fees will carry over to the new date! We want to say thank you and hope that we've made the right decision in your eyes. To our sponsors and strategic partners, we thank you as well and look forward to working together at the Expo when the time is right! We'll reach back out soon with more information on our plans forward. For inquiries, email [email protected]
