First, I want to thank you for your loyalty to our program and to the Galliard Family Business Advisor Institute. You have been important to us in helping to spread a vital message to family businesses—that they are not alone and that planning ahead can make all the difference in the lives of employees, the family and their local community.
Many of you have been working tirelessly and for little financial reward, to ensure our family businesses survive. And now, the Covid-19 virus has made this harder than ever.
With this in mind, we want to do our part to help you to continue to thrive, with as few burdens as possible. We have suspended all membership payments to the Institute. We have heard from you and we know that many of you are tightening your belts. We will continue to run the Institute website as volunteers and the materials will be freely available to any of our members who need them.
If you have a moment, let us know how you are and feel free to share your stories. In the meantime, stay safe, stay well and look forward to a better tomorrow.
