Many VAB members participated in a webinar today regarding how to navigate the federal Paycheck Protection Program, also known as the “PPP” – which is a part of the CARES Act through which billions of dollars will be made available to small businesses.
Our regulatory attorneys from Brooks Pierce presented the webinar, helping to answer many of the questions stations had about the PPP, ranging from whether your business is eligible to apply for a PPP loan, to how and when you can apply, to what bank or banks you ought to reach out to regarding a PPP loan, just to name a few.
Broadcasters aren’t the only ones with questions about the PPP – we know your advertising clients have many similar questions as well.
That’s why we’re hosting an “encore” webinar on Thursday, April 9, 2020, from 11 a.m. to 12:00 ET that will again cover various aspects of the PPP. The webinar will provide updates from today’s presentation; as you know, things are changing during this COVID-19 situation on a daily basis.
We encourage VAB member stations to invite any of your advertising clients to the webinar if you think they could benefit from the information that our Brooks Pierce team will provide. Plenty of time will be provided for questions from webinar participants.
This webinar is available at no cost to VAB members and their clients, but pre-registration is requested. An archive will be available for anyone not able to participate in the live session. Below is copy you may wish to use to invite your clients to participate in the webinar.
We hope you’ll join us for Thursday’s webinar – and invite your advertising clients to join, too.
