“During the pandemic, the Riverside County Economic Recovery Task Force gathered local organizational leaders to assist with city and county recovery programs. Our board president, Phil Baily was part of this task force, sitting alongside the Chamber CEO at the time, Emily Falappino, and former Visit Temecula Valley President & CEO Kimberly Adams. The information and updates shared by our representatives was an invaluable tool in providing important and relevant messages to our membership during the ever-changing climate the pandemic produced.
