Pandemic Finance 101 Webinar
The recently passed COVID-19 relief package includes new available funding as well as adjustments to existing programs.

It also allows 501(c)(6) organizations to access PPP loans. This webinar will provide a comprehensive guide on these new benefits and programs on Monday, Jan. 11 from 1-2 p.m. Registration is free.
