SBAM Annual Meeting Recap

June 23, 2020

On Thursday, June 18, 2020 SBAM’s Annual Meeting took place … virtually! During the event SBAM shared some highlights of our past fiscal year as the gavel was passed from 2019-2020 Board Chair Milan Gandhi to 2020-2021 Board Chair Lorri Rishar.

Panelists Nolan Finley and Stephen Henderson gave us a sneak preview of their Civility Project presentation. We also heard from members of the Mackinac Island Public Health Task Force on the safe reopening of Mackinac Island. Finally Secretary Treasury Steven Mnuchin offered some insight into the Paycheck Protection Program and other small business initiatives.

SBAM awarded David Rhoa with the Richard B. Sanford Lifetime of Advocacy Achievement Award. Four legislators also received honors: Senator Aric Nesbitt, Senator Sylvia Santana and Representative Joe Tate received Small Business Hero honors and Representative Diana Farrington was recognized as our Small Business Legislator of the Year.
