ORA Expo Adesso Capital Educational Session

The ORA has partnered with Adesso Capital to help our members file for their ERC funds. The Adesso team has helped hundreds of restaurants across the U.S. claim an average of $150,000 in ERC funds per filing. Adesso’s tax experts can estimate how much ERC funds you may be eligible for with one ten-minute phone call. Once you know how much ERC money you can expect, the Adesso team will file for you with the IRS. For more information, watch Adesso Capital COO Eddie Alvarez speak on how they assist restaurants claim their ERC money. 


ORA Expo Oklahoma Workforce Opportunities Educational Session

Shelley Zumwalt, Director of the Oklahoma Employment Security Commission, joined ORA President & CEO James Leewright for a discussion about lessons learned while navigating the pandemic, what the state must do to optimize the workforce opportunities before us, OESC's digital transformation that will change the way employers interact with the agency, and how Zumwalt approaches crisis leadership.
