Dept of Commerce Business Briefings, hosted by Greater North Dakota Chamber

GNDC has partnered with ND Department of Commerce to host a series of business briefings via conference call to businesses and GNDC members, trade associations, and local chambers of commerce to discuss current solutions for stressors caused by COVID-19. These calls will occur on a weekly basis on Thursdays at 11:00. Attendees will need to register to receive the call information.

April 2: What you need to know about the CARES Act | registration

We invite small businesses of all types, for- and not-for profit organizations, sole proprietors, independent contractors, and “gig” workers to join us to learn about how the CARES Act, and support that is available to you. We will cover the provisions relating to the Economic Injury Disaster Loan, Paycheck Protection Act, expanded unemployment insurance benefits, and employer requirements under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act. We will also present several hypothetical situations to illustrate how these expanded federal resources may assist you and your business. 

At the time of registration, please provide your questions relating to the CARES Acts or financial resources. These will be provided ahead of time to the Department of Commerce so that presenters can address your questions to the extent possible, given the dynamic environment. Questions not addressed during the conference call will be answered in a follow-up communication.
