Catch up on supplement industry issues as we face new challenges together

MAY 6, 2020

CRN remains active on key supplement industry issues while addressing COVID-19 challenges and looking ahead to next steps

Steve Mister spoke to CRN members Monday via video about our work for you as we face new challenges responding to COVID-19—including returning our operations to full strength, safely and responsibly—as well as continuing to move forward our planned priority initiatives for 2020 where we can.

Many of you asked for additional information on the items Steve discussed, so we've gathered your need-to-know content on these topics from the CRN Daily Supplement in a review edition today to help you get caught up. In addition, we invite you to connect with CRN staff and committees to stay updated—and get involved. And be sure to check out CRN's COVID-19 webinar series, with new topics coming up and valuable on-demand resources now available.
