Clients and Friends,

I hope this message finds you and your loved ones safe and healthy. As we continue to navigate this period of uncertainty in our country, both personally and professionally, we understand that being able to rely on long-trusted advisors can help ease your mind and position you in a proactive stance for the future. With that said, we want to assure you that our CRI team remains available to assist you with whatever your current needs are. As noted in previous communications, the methods by which you contact your advisor may be different now, but you can expect the same level of quality that you’ve come to know and trust.

I want to let you know that our firm has assembled eight different task forces to address the continually changing dynamic that the COVID-19 pandemic has caused. Our task forces are constantly monitoring guidance and legislation changes as they push from federal agencies and developing resources on the following:

  • Business Interruption and Loss Recovery
  • COVID-19: Paid Family Leave Tax Credits
  • Legislative Guidance
  • Division C: Economic Stabilization Act
  • Business Stabilization
  • Small Business Administration (SBA) Disaster Loans
  • Cash Protection
  • COVID-19 Industry Responses and Changes (to banking, government, not-for-profits, construction, insurance, healthcare, manufacturing and distribution, etc.)

Each of these task forces is driven by small, focused teams to ensure that we are agile and effective in our interpretation and communication of the latest legislation and changes impacting you and your business. Our top priority in forming these teams is to educate our clients, as many of you are understandably concerned about what all of these changes mean for you. Our loyalty to our clients is second to none, and now, more than ever, we are poised and ready to serve as your trusted advisors through this trying time.

We know that you are being inundated with communications from many different organizations right now, and we want to be respectful of both your inbox and your time. We plan to send weekly email compilations of helpful resources and materials to guide you as you make decisions for yourself and your business. As new legislation emerges, you may see alerts come from us as well, but please know that we are trying to be sensitive to your time while also providing you with the most up-to-date and relevant information and guidance as it becomes available.

We also invite you to take part in our upcoming COVID Quick Hits webcasts, our 30-minute virtual seminars that will provide you with realistic examples and tactics to implement as you are strategizing for your future, as well as the opportunity to ask CRI professionals questions in real-time. You can find out more about these sessions, along with other resources already available by visiting CRI’s COVID-19 Resources on our website.

Thank you again for allowing us to serve you. We hope that you are able to take comfort in the knowledge and expertise that our advisors can provide you while we all navigate this situation together. We are proud to stand with you.

Stay safe,

Bill Carr
