04.01.20 ARA CARES Act Loan Webinar 50+ employees

ARA is working with Ami Kassar, founder of MultiFunding Business Loan Advisors, to provide information on the loans available under the recently passed CARES Act. We know there is a lot of information to digest and given the speed at which the CARES Act was developed it was not possible to plan for every situation or scenario. Everyone, including the banks, is looking for direction and more information. We have scheduled a session aimed at companies with more than 50 employees for Wednesday, April 1 at 4:00 p.m. ET. We ask that everyone that plans to attend the private rental webinar attend the public webinar at 12:00 p.m. ET on Wednesday, April 1.
