Our COVID-19 Response

On behalf of the Bixby Metro Chamber and Bixby Development Foundation Board of Directors and Staff, we want to first and foremost let you know that you and your businesses remain the highest priority for us. The current COVID-19 situation is uncharted territory for all of us, and our number one goal is that all of our businesses come through this challenging time successfully.

Chamber staff will remain available for the needs of our Partners – we will be working remotely, but are always available via email and phone. The Chamber Offices will be closed to the public until March 27th, at which time we will reevaluate the situation.
