2021 Think Tank White Paper Released

2021 Think Tank White Paper
Culture of Engagement: How to Build Engaged, Passionate Members

2021 Think Tank White Paper

In May 2021, eighteen FSAE members gathered at the Opal Grand Beach Resort & Spa in Delray Beach for the first in-person meeting most members had attended in over a year. The two-day event's focus was a deep-dive in member engagement led by facilitator Joshua Evans. Think Tank is an interactive meeting of a small group of association professionals that contemplate a single topic regarding the association management profession. Findings from the event are shared with the community in a White Paper. We are pleased to share the 2021 White Paper with you.

CARES Act – COVID-19 Stimulus Package Update for Associations

On Friday, March 27 the President signed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act, providing over $2 trillion for emergency aid to Americans and businesses. The Act does allow relief for 501(c)(3) non-profits, but unfortunately 501(c)(6) organizations were omitted from this round of relief.

However, The US Chamber reports that most 501(c)(6)s are eligible for Small Business Administration (SBA) loans through the Emergency Economic Injury Disaster Loan program. “This program has been in place, but was modified in this stimulus package,” The Chamber states. “One modification is that (c)(6)s can apply for a modest $10,000 advance to help with payroll, and that $10,000 does not have to be repaid.”
