Small Business Seminar
PPP Update with SBA
Join us to get an update on Payroll Protection Program (PPP) and ask questions related to Small Business Administration (SBA) funding options during our webinar with Mike Collins, Lender Relations Specialist & District International Trade Officer, SBA.
In this environment, with things changing by the day, we want to make sure the information is relevant and timely so further material details will be updated closer to event date.
Member Spotlight
Maritime Conference Center
With over 100,000 square feet of meeting space and an onsite hotel, Maritime Conference Center (MCC) has everything you will need to conduct a successful meeting or event in the Baltimore/Washington corridor. From classroom space to dining, all of your needs are provided for in-house, which means no lost travel time!
Like many in the travel and hospitality industry, MCC had to temporarily shut down operations due to COVID-19. As Maryland slowly reopens and lifts restrictions, MCC has been working diligently to create protocols and resources for our staff, students, meeting planners and guests to mitigate risk to the best of our abilities and to prepare for our reopening. Just recently, MITAGS reopened its doors to enrolled students and MCC reopened its hotel to house students and instructors. It is our hope that additional areas of our operations will reopen soon, including the ability to host meetings and events. In the meantime, please visit our COVID-19 Resource Center at https://www.mccbwi.org/covid19_resource_center to learn about the many modifications we’ve made to safeguard health and safety. Our sales professionals are standing by to answer your questions and discuss your meetings for the latter half of the year. We look forward to reopening and reconnecting in person soon!
