Advocacy Alert: Get Out the Vote!

THE ASSOCIATION INDUSTRY NEEDS YOUR HELP

ASAE has prepared a sign-on letter calling on Congress to expand access to the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) to include 501(c)(6) nonprofit associations.  The letter urges Congress to extend the PPP until March 31, 2021; allows 501(c)(6) associations to obtain a second PPP loan if needed; expand the definition for eligible receipts to include in-person event cancellations, and lost revenue from certification programs and other education.

Get on board this important effort, by the September 14 deadline.

Great meeting professionals exercise their power by voting.”

Starting next week and continuing on Wednesdays and Fridays up to the November 3 election, the Capital Chapter will be posting on various social media sites information about voting.  This will include deadlines for registering to vote and different ways to cast your ballot as well as how to connect with your elected representatives regarding issues that are important to the meetings industry among other topics.
