WFCA asks members to speak up

Home COVID-19 WFCA asks members to speak up

In response to the aftermath currently unfolding around COVID-19, the WFCA has released the following message to its member community asking them to make their voices heard.

“As we have been working diligently to unite the voices of the flooring industry on your behalf, we are urging our members to also reach out to their representatives directly to ask them to include significant, emergency financial support for all small businesses, yours and ours. Through this call to action, tell your federal elected officials that all small businesses, including associations and other nonprofits, as well as your own, should be eligible for assistance from the ‘Phase 3’ assistance package currently being considered in Congress.

We are all impacted by this unimaginable crisis. Without swift action, harm will be irreparable, and many small businesses will shutter permanently and be unable to assist employees and provide essential services to members during this time of immense tribulation. We are asking you to demand that Congress consider the impact on these resources when crafting aid and stimulus packages.

It takes less than two minutes of your time to complete this request. Your participation is needed now more than ever.”
