graphic for this webinar

We know that each of you are responding to the pandemic and implementing programs and procedures to help your clients and serve the small business community.

Join us TOMORROW at 1:00pm PDT for our latest Listening/Sharing Session and Policy Update.

We’ll do our usual update about the latest happenings with federal and state policy. Then we’ll hear from people involved in small-business consulting, education, policymaking, communications, and government agency administration about “Business as It Could Be”, which is a guide for business recovery questions and strategies for post COVID-19 reopening. We’ll have a discussion centered on recovery and resiliency.

We likely won’t know the full extent of these shifts in demand for months or years to come, but we now have the first glimpses of hard data – courtesy of California’s WBC and SBDC networks. Check out our latest MicroBiz Blog for an overview of the numbers, and contact Heidi Pickman if you have data you’d like to share.
