By: Stephanie Immelman President/CEO of the Greater Delray Beach Chamber of Commerce Special to the Boca and Delray newspapers

As you probably know, the 58th Annual Delray Affair, scheduled for April 3-5 will be cancelled. We are considering alternative dates in the fall and will keep you posted on developments.

We wanted to update our members on business moving forward:

Community Communications

The Delray Beach Chamber aims to be a primary source for information for our community.

We will continue to produce Delray Morning Live, our Facebook Live show, for the foreseeable future. Rather than holding it at Capital One Café, we will film it at the Chamber with no audience for the time being. We aim to have representatives from our City government on the show to give us the latest updates.

We have a closed Facebook page for Chamber Members that we started recently. Please utilize this channel to support each other and our businesses.  https://www.facebook.com/groups/492924008004488/

We will also be posting information on all of our social media channels.

Within the week, our new Chamber Website, www.DelrayBeachChamber.com will go live. The current URL www.DelrayBeach.com will be dedicated to destination marketing, providing information on where to stay and what to do in Delray Beach. We will promote this website fully at a later date.

We’ve taken a look at our upcoming calendar for April and will cancel or reschedule the following events to May and later dates.
