FSAE Joins Statewide PPE Supply Drive

 Emergency Medicine Learning & Resource Center/Florida College of Emergency PhysiciansFSAE is partnering with our members from the Emergency Medicine Learning & Resource Center/Florida College of Emergency Physicians to help make sure emergency room doctors, nurses and first responders throughout the state have the personal protective equipment (PPE) they need to safely do their jobs and take care of us. Our goal is to connect our members’ members/contacts (your members) with their staff to coordinate local donations of supplies of any masks, gloves, face shields, gowns, shoe/head covers, eye protection, etc. that your members may have that aren’t currently being used. 

Emergency medicine providers are going to work every day without the proper PPE to protect them from exposure to the virus that causes COVID-19. A box of gloves from a closed kitchen/restaurant or protective gear from a manufacturing plant that's temporarily closed can all add up to make a huge difference to the first-responder, nurse or doctor treating someone in your community.

CARES Act – COVID-19 Stimulus Package Update for Associations

On Friday, March 27 the President signed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act, providing over $2 trillion for emergency aid to Americans and businesses. The Act does allow relief for 501(c)(3) non-profits, but unfortunately 501(c)(6) organizations were omitted from this round of relief.

However, The US Chamber reports that most 501(c)(6)s are eligible for Small Business Administration (SBA) loans through the Emergency Economic Injury Disaster Loan program. “This program has been in place, but was modified in this stimulus package,” The Chamber states. “One modification is that (c)(6)s can apply for a modest $10,000 advance to help with payroll, and that $10,000 does not have to be repaid.”

FSAE Re-Imagines Charitable Support through a Rethreaded Pop-Up Shop at its Annual Conference

A history of giving back at annual conference

The Florida Society of Association Executives (FSAE) began incorporating a social responsibility component into its annual conference back in 2010. That year, conference attendees helped sort and box food for a food bank. Over the years, attendees have donated to multiple Florida-based food banks, Friends of the Palm Beach County Library System, All Children’s Hospital in St. Petersburg, and Sneakers for September, a nonprofit that provides new sneakers for children in Orange and Osceola counties. In 2016, FSAE’s giving was personal: Conference attendees were asked to donate to the UF (University of Florida) Health Cancer Center in memory of FSAE members who had recently lost battles with cancer.
