A REVENUE OPPORTUNITY
BP has set aside billions of dollars to pay nonprofit organizations in Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama, as well as in certain areas of Florida and Texas, for any decline in revenues suffered during 2010. LANO members do not have to prove that any declines in revenue was actually caused by BP. For example, nonprofits do not have to prove that the oil spill prevented their members from attending events, or any other "causal" connection. All that nonprofits must demonstrate is that their revenues declined in 2010, compared to prior periods during 2007 - 2009, and as compared to later periods in 2011.
FIND OUT IF YOUR ORGANIZATION QUALIFIES
Starting in mid-March 2013, the law firm of Kahn Swick & Foti, LLC, will begin hosting a series of free luncheons, designed to provide information to LANO members regarding the BP Oil Spill Claims process. We will be posting the day and location of these events on the LANO Community Calendar, and alerting members in the local meeting areas via email. The first event is scheduled for March 15, 2013 in Baton Rouge, at Gino’s Restaurant at 12:30. [Registration link]
