#naBEmore #KnowledgeableAboutPandemics

A pandemic can have a major impact on association operations. Given the extraordinary daily challenges bar professionals are facing in light of COVID-19, NABE has put together this page which provides links to important information on pandemic and emergency preparedness.

In addition to this resource page, NABE convened weekly calls to discuss all issues that are impacting bars.  Summaries of those discussions and some recordings are available below.
