FACC Women in Leadership SERIES


The FACC Women in Leadership Committee has launched a Lunch & Learn Series for 2020-2021 to highlight leaders in our community that are spearheading initiatives that promote women in business, inspiring our local/global networks with innovative ideas, and acting as agents of change to address local, bi-national (French-American), and global needs.

Please join us for the first Lunch&Learn in our series:

COVID Financial Challenges and Relief Solutions

for Small Businesses

The Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak has caused unprecedented financial and operational  disruption especially for small businesses.  Under the CARES Act signed into law on March 27, 2020, $376 billion of relief funding options and solutions are available for small businesses. We will discuss how to access the “Paycheck Protection Program” (PPP) designed to help businesses retain employees through loan forgiveness to maintain instead of closing down their operations.  Other business solutions and flexible financing options, including deposit/payment programs as well as investments and insurance options will be presented to help small businesses navigate the complexities of doing business during this time of economic hardship.

We will hear from our FACC Women in Leadership member, MBallou Conde-Kouyate, Vice-President and Business Bank Relationship Manager of M&T Bank.
