Helping small businesses

Oct. 19, 2021

As the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic drags on, the impact is continuing to be felt by those in the event rental industry, as well as thousands of other businesses across numerous industries. The need for additional financial assistance is crucial and the American Rental Association (ARA) is working to help.

In May, ARA spearheaded the formation of the Economic Bridge Coalition (EBC) — which has grown to include 17 associations. These groups have teamed up to help push for more support for the businesses they represent.

Rental Management recently spoke with John McClelland, Ph.D., ARA’s vice president for government affairs and chief economist. He shared background information on ARA’s decision to create this coalition and how it’s giving those in the event rental industry the best opportunity for additional, much-needed help.
