ASMP COVID-19 Town Hall Q&A – April 10

By April 6, 2020 April 7th, 2020 Advocacy, COVID-19, Strictly Business Blog, Town Hall


Friday April 10 @ 3pmET

Join ASMP Executive Director Tom Kennedy, ASMP General Counsel Tom Maddrey, and ASMP Copyright Counsel Mike Klipper for the fourth in a series of “Town Hall Q&A” sessions.

The Paycheck Protection Program has been open for one week — and many things have changed. On Friday, April 10 the program opens to “self-employed and independent contractors.” Find out what this means, which banks and systems are doing well, and what is not quite working yet. We will also discuss the factors that can help you answer the question of individual unemployment or business loan programs.

We know this is a stressful time for all photographers and creatives, and in response, ASMP has set up a COVID-19 Info Hub where you can find information, watch videos, and be connected with the most useful resources. This set of Town Hall events is another way to hear from our members, and provide current, practical, and sound advice in these tough times.

If you are unable to attend, this Town Hall will be recorded and posted on the COVID-19 Town Hall Q&A page where videos for previous Town Hall Q&As are posted.

We have also recently posted a COVID-19 Impact Survey to gather data to guide future content for Town Halls and webinars as well as inform our advocacy campaign directives. Please take 2 minutes to assist us by participating in the survey.

We hope to see you on Friday.
