It Takes a Village, But It Also Takes Associations
As an association management company, Grau & Associates is a proud member of the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE). Just as there is an association for snow mobile enthusiasts, back yard bird feeders, accountants, brewers, and just about anything else you can think of, there is an association for associations and association professionals! ASAE is an invaluable resource for information, advocacy, and just about anything else in the association management world.
ASAE has for months been advocating Congress to include non-profits and especially 501(c)(6) organizations in the latest round of COVID-19 relief and the Paycheck Protection Plan programming. See HERE for ASAE’s recent letter seeking clarifications.
As it stands, non-profit organizations including 501(c)(6) associations are included in the program and we all have ASAE’s advocacy efforts to thank. If you are a non-profit association and are wondering if your particular situation will allow for a successful PPP application, please reach out to Grau & Associates. These days it will take all of us looking out for each other to be sure we stay safe and reach our goals.
Aaron Grau is president of Grau & Associates, a boutique association management firm with offices in Pittsburgh, PA and Washington, DC.
