Like our members, we are closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation and making contingency plans for our organization. We are not acting out of fear but rather a sense of concern for business continuity and making sure that we continue to be a resource for our members. With that in mind, we wanted to create a resource center which will house various documents and web links which you may find useful in planning your own response to the growing concern over the spread of the virus.

Feel free to share or link to any of the resources below. The more informed we as an industry are about this issue, the better prepared we can be to not only protect our employees but continue to serve our customers as best we can.
