The year-long webinar series will focus on a variety of topics, including:

  • The impact of coronavirus on the local economy, businesses, and healthcare systems
  • Local, state, and federal aid and loan programs for Whatcom County businesses
  • The outlook for important local and regional industries
  • Success stories from local companies that have successfully pivoted to meet new regulations and changing customer demand
  • Human resource and employee health and safety requirements in the age of coronavirus
  • The challenges companies, employees, and communities face as the Washington economy reopens
  • The local, state, and national energy industry and how it is adapting to the new reality
  • And more!

The list of webinar topics may change as the state transitions through various stages of reopening, but we believe discussing these topics—and others—with local business people, thought leaders, health experts and public officials will help ensure our business community stays prepared, informed and capable of navigating a rapidly changing environment.
