Virtual Discussions

In the spring of 2020, a group of ImpACT! Leaders created this series of open discussions as the COVID-19 became a more prominent crisis, forcing many businesses to close in-person operations. After the project ended, ACT continued to host these exclusive member discussions, which launched projects like the National COVID Commuter Survey and ACT's Supporting Commuters Returning to Worksites During COVID-19 publication. These discussions are free, but only open to ACT members. Learn more about virtual discussions>>
