Small Business Owners are invited and encouraged to join the April 16th Teletown Hall at 5:00p.m.

US Senator Lisa Murkowski & US Senator Dan Sullivan

The Senators are having a teletown hall specifically for small businesses with SBA representatives.

Some answers to questions we’ve received before:

Q: How do I joint the teletown hall?

A: You register via the link (below). By registering, you will receive a phone call at the time of the event with the information you provided when you registered. (so no, we will not be giving out a number for people to call)

Q: I didn’t register—I don’t want to give out my personal information.

A: IF you didn’t register, you can listen to the call via the link (below). The difference of listening versus being on the call is that you won’t have an opportunity to ask a question on the phone during the live call.

Below is the registration page for the small business teletown hall happening tomorrow night at 5pm Alaska time.

INFORMATION FROM THE REGISTRATION PAGE:

We know Alaskans are facing serious impacts during the coronavirus pandemic and that includes our small businesses. We want to hear from our small businesses about how this pandemic is impacting you, your employees, and your businesses. We also want to answer questions you may have to help you navigate the resources and assistance available.

This Thursday, April 16, starting at 5:00pm, Senator Murkowski and Senator Sullivan, alongside representatives from the Small Business Administration are holding a teletown hall event—an interactive phone call that invites you to ask questions and hear directly from your U.S. Senators and SBA representatives Jeremy Field, SBA Regional Administrator Nancy Porzio, District Director for the Alaska District Office.

Sign up below to join the conversation. Those who sign up will receive a phone call on Thursday at the time of the event joining them to the teletown hall.
