The 10th annual Ag is Everyone’s Business event, annually presented by the Highland County Chamber of Commerce, will be postponed to a later date in 2021 due to ongoing Covid-19 restrictions, the chamber said in a Tuesday news release.

“The ag event has quickly become a popular event not only for our chamber members but also for those directly involved in agriculture in our area,” said Jamie Wheeler, Highland County Chamber of Commerce executive director. “We know that current COVID-19 restrictions will not let us have the event to the caliber that is expected during our normal time frame, therefore the chamber board of directors has decided to postpone the event until later in 2021.”

Announcements about the event, as well as other chamber activities, will be made available at www.thehighlandchamber.com as well as the chamber’s social media accounts, the news release said.

A year ago, Ohio Governor Mike DeWine was the keynote speaker at the event that annual draws a crowd of around 400 to the Southern State Community College Patriot Center.

The Highland County Chamber of Commerce is a non-profit membership-driven organization that represents the business community of Highland County. The many plans and programs the chamber offers its investors, combined with county workforce development initiatives, and local, state and federal legislative/advocacy efforts positions the chamber of commerce as a lead organization in Highland County.
