With no end in sight for the protracted federal government shutdown, companies and workers across our region must prepare for the impact of a long and potentially costly disruption.
“Our region is disproportionately affected by federal government shutdowns and the impact reaches deep into our community,” says Dulles Regional Chamber of Commerce President & CEO John Boylan. “Beyond the direct effect felt among our friends and colleagues within the federal government, this shutdown imposes a real burden on many of the businesses in our region, especially contractors and subcontractors who are increasingly pressured each day this shutdown continues.”
The impact of this federal government shutdown can be difficult to manage without the proper support. That is why the Dulles Chamber has gathered some of the region’s leading figures from the financial, legal and insurance industries as well as local government for the Survival Guide for Businesses Impacted by the Federal Government Shutdown, a free panel on Jan. 10, Hilton Washington Dulles in Herndon from 4 pm to 5:15 pm to help local businesses and professionals navigate this uncertain time.
During the Dulles Chamber’s Survival Guide for Businesses Impacted by the Federal Government Shutdown, our experts will deliver key advice on:
- The direct and indirect cost of the shutdown.
- How companies can remain solvent.
- Options for your employees.
- Remedies available to government contractors.
- What to do when this shutdown is over.
- How to prepare for the next shutdown.
“It is in times like these that communities must come together to support each other. Our free panel is intended to help workers and local businesses of all sizes mitigate the adverse effects this federal government shutdown and be ready to go when this shutdown ends,” says Boylan.
