CMM Managing Partner and HIA-LI Board Chairman Joe Campolo led a virtual meeting this morning with U.S. Congressman Lee Zeldin to discuss the economic challenges facing businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic and how to solve them.

The meeting was hosted by HIA-LI, the voice of Long Island business. Under the leadership of President & CEO Terri Alessi-Miceli, HIA-LI has been working tirelessly throughout this crisis to deliver critical resources and information to the business community.

The wide-ranging discussion focused on the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) eligibility, challenges, and loan forgiveness; additional resources for businesses struggling during these unprecedented times; federal guidance on phases to reopen the economy, and more. As a lawyer and advisor to countless businesses, a business owner himself, and a fearless advocate for the Long Island business community, Campolo took the meeting as an opportunity to ensure that the business community’s concerns are heard in Washington.
