Lee County EDG is partnering with the Keokuk Chamber, Keokuk Main Street Inc., and Fort Madison Partners to present Lee County Q&A Sessions for our local businesses.

This is an opportunity for our businesses to hear from local, state and federal leaders and ask questions as we navigate new programs in order to minimize the long-term impact COVID-19 has on Lee County. There will be a variety of Q&A sessions available with different experts and each session will be recorded if you are not able to attend the specific date/time.
