A presentation for the Shenandoah Valley Chambers of Commerce

The Challenges of Re-Opening the Economy, One Business at a Time

Tackling Your Business Questions as Re-Opening Begins

The reality: Re-opening, re-staffing, ramping back to full production, re-evaluating operation as the Governor allows Phase 1 to begin is not like opening up after closing for a snow storm, remodeling, re-tooling or taking a long vacation. For many business owner and managers, there are more questions than answers. Consider:

Employment Practices

                What can I expect of my employees? What can they expect of me?

                General Assembly 2020 impacts on the horizon, as we try to get back to “normal”.

Business Liability

                In the unchartered waters of post-COVID-19, where are we?

                Are “best practices” good enough?

Financial Assistance and Implications

                PPP, EIDL – There’s no such thing as a free lunch, is there?

Looking ahead, beyond the re-opening.

We are pleased to have four speakers who are knowledgeable on multiple facets of business law and accounting, are well known and respected in the Valley and the Commonwealth, and quickly became well versed in COVID-19 responses at the state and national levels.
