Dear LANO Membership,
The last four days have been shocking for most and devastating for others. As we still wait on rescue for so many it is hard to consider relief and recovery. We are currently surveying those LANO members in the affected areas who need temporary work space for their staff, furniture and equipment, and volunteers for clean-up. A LANO group space within the network will be online soon to coordinate the information and requests.
As many of you know, our annual conference is scheduled for Thursday August 18 in Baton Rouge and we have made the decision to continue with the conference as scheduled. We are working to add a panel session focused on coordinated disaster efforts of nonprofits, providing resources for recovery for organizations, and organizing a donation drop at conference of essential items for victims of the flooding.
We hope that Thursday will give you an opportunity to reconnect post disaster with friends and colleagues. We are eager to see you and spend time with you.
Please reach out at firstname.lastname@example.org if we can be of assistance.
President & CEO, LANO
