Consistent with the guidance provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and in adherence to Governor Baker’s declared State of Emergency due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce’s Annual Meeting is postponed. The event has been moved to Friday, October 30 from its originally scheduled date of Thursday, May 21.

The Chamber previously announced that all in-person Chamber programs and events would be rescheduled, include a virtual option, or become fully virtual, through Friday, May 1. A decision about other Chamber events occurring after May 1 will be announced at a later date.
