The Impact of COVID-19: Business Resources

Posted By Laura Berry, Friday, March 13, 2020
Updated: Thursday, March 19, 2020

As the world grapples with COVID-19, WIPP is closely monitoring the CDC's global health status and encouraging everyone to follow your local, state, and federal government guidelines for public health. Due to ongoing concerns, our organization is suspending on-site and in-person activities for the near future.


WIPP will still serve our business ecosystem through our online-based resources. We are committed to keeping a strong community connection for all our stakeholders throughout this challenging time. As we move forward, we are thinking about business continuity, especially for our small business owners, our corporate and agency partners, and our strategic organizational partners.
