LIC: Community Through Crisis
Tuesday, December 1st, 2020 | 9:00am - 11:30am
Virtual Event via GoToWebinar
The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted communities all over the world and has significantly changed the
way businesses operate. This unprecedented situation called on local, city, state, and federal agencies to
provide guidance and support as businesses adapt to new restrictions.
In recent years, Long Island City has become a highly attractive live-work-recreate talent hub with a broad
range of industries. Now, this community of innovative leaders must navigate through uncharted waters to
find relief during a public health crisis, and to build towards a better future.
This year’s Summit will explore the continuing effects of COVID-19 and how key groups such as small
businesses, healthcare, civic/non-profit, arts and education, manufacturers, workforce, real estate, and
government agencies worked independently, as well as collaboratively, to recover during a crisis.
