The Greater Atlantic City Chamber, Atlantic County’s largest organization of citizens and business people, in collaboration with the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority, Atlantic County Economic Alliance, Margate Business Association, Atlantic City Metropolitan Business and Citizens Association, Somers Point Business Association, Brigantine Chamber of Commerce, Mays Landing Merchant Association, and the Greater Hammonton Chamber of Commerce, released a survey today that measures the business impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. The survey, launched exactly one month after Governor Murphy announced a statewide stay at home order and closure of all non-essential retail businesses, addresses the financial impact the COVID-19 pandemic has had on Atlantic County business.

Michael Chait, President of the Greater Atlantic City Chamber, stated, “It is imperative we collect data from the business community to better understand the specific impact of this pandemic.  The collection and sharing of data with policymakers will help us advocate for the ongoing needs of the business community.”

All businesses are encouraged to complete the survey which is the first of a series of surveys in our collective efforts to identify and quantify the challenges companies are now facing as a result of the pandemic. The survey will conclude on Friday, May 8.

Full survey results will be released at a later date. For more information please contact the Greater Atlantic City Chamber at (609) 345-4524 or via email at
