NCA Tracks Next Relief Legislation

Phase IV Stimulus Deal Could Benefit Clubs
White House negotiations with Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) have reportedly made progress, but a deal remains elusive this week. The parties have a goal of reaching an agreement by the end of the week, but are currently far apart on major issues such as aid for schools, funding for the postal service and assistance to state and local governments. One area the parties are in fairly close proximity is enhancement of the Employee Retention Tax Credit (ERTC). Read more on the proposed enhancement of the ERTC here.

Reminder: Check in with Your Insurance Broker
Clubs are reminded to work with their brokers as members are reporting to NCA that workers' comp premiums and general liability coverage are decreasing in costs due to the employment situation and lower F&B sales. The process involves estimating new payroll and sales for the balance of the policy year and providing that information to your brokers.

NOTE: As part of the National Club Association's effort to educate clubs on how to safely and effectively navigate this unprecedented crisis, NCA is pleased to share this update. This regular newsletter updates clubs about new resources and guidance from NCA and trusted sources.
