Patterson Urges Congress to Aid Associations and Non-profits Impacted by Coronavirus

ACTRIMS conference room

AMPED President and Owner, Lynda J. Patterson sent a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other Congressional leaders Sunday asking that they include associations, nonprofits and tax-exempt organizations in any federal aid packages or supplemental measures.

"Many have and will be harmed by event cancellations and reduced meeting attendance as a result of COVID-19," she wrote, noting that in the last week, six of her company's client association meetings were canceled and more are expected to come.

According to the Events Industry Council’s 2018 Economic Significant Study conducted by Oxford Economics, more than 1.9 million meetings occur in the United States each year – with more than 250 million attendees. These meetings contribute more than $446 billion to U.S. gross domestic product and directly support 5.9 million jobs nationwide.
