Webinars by HBA

The HBA Lansing is setting up a series of Webinars to help our members and the companies that support them navigate the current Business Climate. The first one is in the next couple of days will be regarding unemployment options and potential funding options.
First, if you feel this would be helpful, reach out to Brent Forsberg or Cindy Kosloski.  Second, if you are  a subject matter expert willing to share your knowledge please let us know. This is not a sales tool, we are looking for experts willing to share information about the overall conditions and options.
This will end. It is up to us to make sure we are ready to get our region back to work. The focus of these will be best practices by you and your peers to help minimize the economic impact on our local companies. More on this soon!
