  Creative Borrowing Solutions
The pandemic that is raging across America has had a profound impact on arts organizations in Texas. The urgency of these times calls for different solutions to the financial problems facing the arts. Fully secured borrowing provides arts organizations a way to make it to the other side of this pandemic and stay in the business. Join presenters Richard Linzer of Linzer Consulting and Irene Namkung of Traditional Arts Services as they explain what fully secured borrowing is, why it is so valuable for arts organizations, and how to obtain it. The presentation will be followed by a question-and-answer session. Registration is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
