Throughout the crisis, our CEO, Andy Clurman, has hosted weekly town hall meetings to keep us all up to speed on everything from media industry trends, company finances, challenges and opportunities, and tips on filing for unemployment to cover our one-day-a-week furlough. I'm proud of and impressed by our company's transparency and proactive outreach throughout this challenging time.

We are a competitive bunch here at AIM. Last week during our town hall, Andy announced a contest: Post your best WFH photos and win a prize.
