Recovery Planning for Manufacturers


Join the Hillsboro Chamber, the City of Hillsboro and OMEP for a presentation and discussion focused on preparing for the recovery.  Is our supply chain ready to accommodate an increased level of business and orders?  How should we prepare and communicate with employees returning to the workplace?  What can we do now to ensure the most seamless transition from business restrictions to a new sense of normalcy? A full complement of experts will be on hand to offer advice, support and answer your questions.
