Forty-six member volunteers visited 224 Irvine businesses during the Greater Irvine Chamber’s fall 2019 Business Outreach Rally. They surveyed the businesses and provided them with copies of the Business Outreach Resource Guide, which features information about support resources provided through the Chamber and its partner organizations, and offers possible solutions to what they said were their most pressing needs: their ability to increase sales, and navigate business regulations.

Overall, 75% of the survey respondents said they either met or exceeded their business goals.

October’s Business Outreach Rally was led in activity by volunteer teams James Zhou and Thomas Lotts, and Joe Alvarez and Claire Na, who tied for submitting the highest number of surveys.
