The ABMA resource page has a variety of resources available and ties into the National Association of Manufacturers resource page which has a very comprehensive listing.

We will be adding to this page as more resources become available. Please contact ABMA HQ if you'd like to suggest additional resource listings.

In additon, ABMA announced today that it will be facilitating a member round table discussion of COVID-19. The zoom meeting invitation follows:

ABMA Invites You to Join a COVID-19 Member's Roundtable Discussion Zoom Meeting

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.
