Hindsight is 2020

Lessons Learned During a Pandemic

Via Zoom


Tuesday, January 26, 2021

10:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.



2020 was a tough year to say the least. We faced many challenges both personally and professionally and experienced things we never anticipated. As we continue to understand the impact of 2020 and the COVID-19 pandemic in Arkansas, it's important to reflect on lessons learned over the last year so we can be better prepared moving forward.


Join ABC on January 26th for our 'Hindsight is 2020' Zoom discussion where keynote speaker, Randy Zook, President and CEO of the Arkansas State Chamber of Commerce and Associated Industries of Arkansas will share his insight on how the pandemic has affected our state and what we can learn from this experience.


After the presentation, attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions.


Following the Q&A, we will hear testimonies from a few industry leaders on how they kept their business running successfully during the pandemic and what they learned over the past year.
