How an Association Is Paving the Way for Small-business Recovery

The main idea was to create on-demand courses available anytime they're needed

Small-business owners and their employees will have access to online, personalized training from leading experts in key areas to help them generate revenue and position themselves for the road ahead.

“As the go-to resource for small businesses, we’re thrilled to deploy Forge Ahead and believe the expert-led, online training will provide the tools that are necessary for small businesses to move forward,” said Jess Roman, ASBA’s CEO, in a press release.
