Letter from Executive Director of National AAHAM, Sharon R. Galler, CMP

Dear Members:

We wanted to share with you that under AAHAM President Lori Sickelbaugh’s direction, I co-signed a letter with the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) asking Congress to specifically include 501(c) organizations like AAHAM in any federal relief package.

The letter we sent asked Congress to:   

•   Include 501(c) organizations, such as 501(c)(6) trade, professional and membership associations, in an additional Small Business Interruption Loan expansion 

•   Provide $25 billion in emergency aid for associations that face major financial loss due to event cancellations as a result of COVID-19

•   Create a pandemic risk insurance program to create a federal backstop for prospective insurance claims related to a pandemic or epidemic

As an association, this is just one step toward recovery that we are championing on behalf of the association industry. Thank you for putting your trust in AAHAM. 

Warm regards,
Sharon R. Galler, CMP

Executive Director
