ASA Members,

During this time of extraordinary pressure on your businesses, don't forget that you have a robust library of resources at your fingertips! The ASA InfoHub is the place to find documents for best practices, language on legal issues, and much, much more. 

Once in the InfoHub, choose the Resources section to find everything that is available to you. The leadership at ASA is committed to keeping our members informed on any updates at the federal level, as well as provided with the knowledge and tools you need to protect your businesses.

In the midst of our nation's battle with COVID-19, several new documents have recently been added to the InfoHub for you to use, including: the ASA Coronavirus Employer Guide, as well as the ASA Coronavirus Employer Guide.

In addition, we added COVID-19: Language for Subcontractors to Explore Legal Issues. This document has been prepared by ASA Vice President-Elect Brian Carroll, ASA Attorney Council Chair Bethany Beck, and Allen Wilson. All of whom work at Sanderford and Carroll, PC. Members are cautioned that these documents are not meant to be specific or general legal advice, and are encouraged to contact their chapter attorney or personal attorney to discuss the specific impacts to your company.

To access these MEMBERS ONLY documents, please visit the Resources section of the InfoHub and choose "Member Benefits/ASAdvantage" from the drop-down menu.

Working hard for all of our members,
ASA National
