In two days we get to actually say hindsight is 2020. As we reflect on what has been a year filled with unexpected events, hardships, perseverance, and resilience, we thank you for being a part of Buy Idaho.
As you know, Buy Idaho has championed for Idaho’s business community for over 35 years. With your membership dues, special events, and the generous sponsorships from our partners, we have been able to continue to serve our members through the challenges this year has thrown our way.
Looking back, it wasn’t all bad. We had quite a few wins! We helped many anxious members find new ways to operate, create new revenue streams, and connect to other businesses to work together with the joint efforts of survival. We have realized that we are all essential, and that there is nothing more important than supporting the businesses in our community. You are our neighbors, friends, and family. You are the lifeblood of our state.
As we close the books on 2020 and reflect on all that has transpired, we hope for your continued health, perseverance, and success. We look forward to 2021 with new opportunities, creative collaborations, and a strengthened connection within our business community.
We ask that you continue to support Buy Idaho and our efforts, as we continue to work for you. Due to the nature of our trade association, Buy Idaho had limited eligibility for any relief funding, and has felt the same financial strain as the rest of our community. We ask that you help share our message by encouraging your neighbors and friends to join and support our cause. As we grow in members, our network strengthens and the louder our message becomes. If your membership has lapsed, we encourage you to renew, if you know of a business that would benefit from our vast network, send them our way, if you would like to be a sponsor, email us, and if you have the ability to continue in the spirit of giving, we would greatly appreciate your donation.
Our office will be closed until January 4th, but Wyatt and I are always available by phone or email. We thank you for a wonderful year, despite the challenges. We are excited for a new year with new opportunities, and we wish you all the very best.
Stay safe and healthy, and don’t forget to BUY IDAHO!
Keeping it local,
Jennifer and Wyatt
