The Santa Clarita Valley Chamber of Commerce announced Tuesday the launch of its new weekly “@Lunch With…” virtual lunchtime series, which is designed to bring the business community together for engaging and insightful conversations on current local issues and topics with recognized community leaders.

Continuing to connect with each other, while apart during this time is important.”
