Q & A for Small Businesses Regarding Stabilization Efforts
ST. LOUIS — Mayor Lyda Krewson & License Collector Mavis T. Thompson, Esq. will host a 2nd joint webinar Wednesday, May 13, 2020 at 10 A.M. regarding current & impending stabilization efforts for the small business community.

This webinar builds on last month’s Small Business Resource & Assistance Webinar, where interested parties were able to engage our panel of experts in discussion regarding the various assistance programs for small businesses operating in the City of St. Louis.
