 COVID-19 Resources 
IPAY has been working internally and with our partners at APAC* to meet the needs of our touring communities during the pandemic that has rocked our sector. APAC has been offering weekly resource driven webinars, meanwhile IPAY has rolled out our own programming, such as virtual Kitchen Tables and other opportunities to share and connect with each other. IPAY offers you these community resources to support your work.
