Paint companies, associations, merchants, and consulting groups have all provided resources and announcements to help navigate through the current and upcoming weeks of pandemic protection. Below are a list of links that include ways to keep your business going, new hours and procedures from some of the larger merchants, and health recommendations and reminders.
Associations and Nonprofits
Benjamin Moore has teamed up with the Painting Contractors Association (PCA) to underwrite participation costs for the association’s Operation COVID-19 Response conference. Starting April 7th, PCA’s eight-week online conference will provide a series of educational opportunities, strategies and resources needed for business owners to make informed decisions, stabilizing their profit and protecting their team. Offsetting the fees associated with the virtual training will help alleviate a financial hurdle for many painting contractors and their businesses during this time. Even if you missed the first session, there is still time to sign up. To register, please visit PCApaintED.org/conference-BM and use the promotional code BMSUPPORTS.
The Finishing Contractors Association of Illinois has links to several health, financial, and business oriented resources, “designed to assist your company as you navigate these turbulent times.” http://www.fcaofillinois.org/covid19
