Our Response to the COVID-19 Crisis -- A Letter to Our Members

March 31, 2020

Dear Members,

Like everyone, we have been surprised at the dynamic nature and rapid spread of COVID-19 and the global public health crisis that has resulted. As the outbreak has continued and intensified, it has had an almost unimaginable impact on our daily lives, families, travel, social interaction, and work.

We are writing today to assure you that ALDA will do all in our power to help our members to successfully weather the COVID-19 crisis. We will continue to provide the programs and opportunities to interact with your industry peers as we have always done, although some may move online. In addition, we will continue to introduce new programs designed to help your company understand and respond to the COVID-19 crisis. We also will alert you to resources that may assist you.
