NOMA’s Response to the Pandemic: Staying ALL In

Noma Pandemic Response V2sq

Dear NOMA Family, my thoughts and prayers are with you all as we continue to adjust to a new way of life in the midst of this pandemic. Of greatest importance to us at this point is your health and well being. Please continue to take all of the necessary precautions to stay safe. Thank you in advance for doing your part to flatten the curve by Staying ALL In and sheltering in place as our healthcare leaders gain a hold on COVID-19. While you Stay ALL In, NOMA has compiled some ideas and resources that we’d like to share in an effort to help you productively weather these uncertain times and remain focused on your goals. Remember, we will get through this, so stay positive.


For our members who are not yet licensed, we are encouraging you to consider using this time to begin or continue your study routines so that you’ll be ready to pass your exams with flying colors when we emerge out of this time of crisis. Use the coming weeks to compile and review study materials, assemble study groups and plan a strategy to complete your licensure process. Don’t forget to log your hours with NCARB if you haven’t done so in a while. For more information on how to approach licensure while navigating the pandemic, please visit NCARB’s website.


For many of our members who own firms, this is an especially troubling time. We want you to know that NOMA is committed to doing whatever we can to support your efforts to keep your business going. To that end, we would like to encourage you to consider applying for assistance with the Small Business Association (SBA), which is offering low-interest federal disaster loans for which your firm may qualify as a result of COVID-19’s economic impact. Please visit the SBA website for more information.
