NACE National is conducting a nationwide COVID-19 Impact Survey.
At NACE, providing our members with access to community, and essentials resources is very important to us. We invite you to partcipate as this will help identify and quantify the financial and employment impacts of the coronavirus on the catering and events business. The data we collect will provide important information on the challenges the pandemic is creating for professionals and business owners, and what the path forward to full recovery means in real world numbers.
Completing this allows us to tell your story and communicate the enormous challenges you face.
Please read the letter sent by NACE National's Executive Director Lawrence Leonard, CAE, CMP to Speaker Pelosi, Senators McConnell and Schumer, and Treasury Secretary Mnuchin asking them to ensure event industry companies are represented in any stimulus or aid packages.
We compiled a list of helpful business resources, webinars, and articles for dealing with the effects of COVID-19:
