ABMA Creates COVID-19 Resource Page

ABMA has initiated a resource page for COVID-19 with variety of resources available and ties into the National Association of Manufacturers resource page which has a very comprehensive listing. The ABMA plans to add to the page as more resources become available.


The ABMA has new improved versions for contacting government officials to ask for “essential” business classification. Check out the resources here:


The ABMA also announced today that it will be facilitating a member round table discussion of COVID-19. Meeting details:

In this meeting we will have discussion on member’s plans and actions regarding the rapid changes coming to all of our members regarding state and federal responses to COVID-19. We will discuss such areas as:

  1. If your state has instituted “shelter-in-place” protocols, how do you make sure you are on the “essential business” list?
  2. What steps have you taken or are you planning on taking to prepare for a widespread outbreak in your area?
    1. Policy changes in the factory?
    2. Expanding sick pay?
    3. Relaxing of the attendance policy?
    4. Automatic shutdown for 14 days if a case is found inside your business?
    5. Additional cleaning procedures?
  3. Are there any changes to the way you conduct business that you are making?
    1. Pulling back customer terms (because you’re worried they won’t be able to pay their bills)?
    2. Holding less or more inventory?
    3. Taking additional loans from bank just to have cash on hand to weather the storm?
  4. What interruptions to your supply chain have you seen and/or are you predicting?

​(and more)

This meeting is open to the first 100 attendees who report in and will last 1 hour.
