Live Webinar: AASLH Conversations: Planning for an Uncertain Financial Future
- Registration Closed
The COVID-19 pandemic has caused an unprecedented crisis in our local communities, country, and world. Many are seeking answers and guidance during this time, and AASLH has been listening to the concerns from the history community. In response, we are offering more online content including the new AASLH Conversations webinar series. While no one has all the answers, we hope these topic-focused conversations will provide a space to share ideas to help us all keep moving forward.
We know many organizations are facing financial strain due to the pandemic, so we developed AASLH Conversations with that in mind. We have drastically reduced the registration fee and are also providing a special promo code to waive the registration fee completely.
This conversation has been made possible in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities: Exploring the human endeavor.
The current COVID-19 pandemic has created a challenging financial climate for American history organizations of all sizes. As we consider how to best respond to these rapidly changing circumstances, we face difficult decisions to ensure institutional survival. In this facilitated discussion, we will address the topic of financial crisis planning and with particular focus on business interruption and resumption, budget revisions and financial modeling, communications with stakeholders, and a review of relevant current legislation. This webinar will be an opportunity to introduce and discuss pertinent areas of financial planning with museum professionals, trustees, and, volunteers.
