Each year, the Sonoma Valley Chamber of Commerce conducts an online survey of all Valley businesses. The information gathered is used to provide the Chamber and the City of Sonoma, among other agencies, with information about the health of the local economy.
Individual answers are not shared, however the aggregated information will be made publicly available, according to Chamber of Commerce officials.
The Chamber is seeking information from businesses on how they are faring, how they view the local business climate, and how they are affected by a variety of issues facing business owners. Survey results identify trends and can help set priorities for initiatives to support the local economy.
This year, there is a dedicated section regarding PG&E Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) impacts.
The annual survey is designed to take about 10 minutes to complete, and gives the opportunity for additional comments. One person — preferably an owner or manager — from each business is asked to complete the survey. Chamber membership is not required to participate.
