Everyone at DRI International is proud to announce that we have joined forces with the National Foundation for Women Legislators (NFWL), expanding the foundation’s disaster relief and preparedness efforts.
Both organizations share the common goal of identifying and implementing effective solutions that will improve disaster preparedness and awareness across the nation. DRI International will join elected women from across the nation in Atlanta, November 15-19, 2012 during the National Foundation for Women Legislators’ Annual Conference. NFWL and DRI International also plan to co-host a Congressional Briefing in Washington, DC in March 2013 to expand the dialogue.
A partnership with DRI International will allow NFWL to enhance its efforts to work with elected women from every state to raise awareness about the importance of facilitating cooperation between the public and private sectors and supporting efforts that will allow for business continuity during times of disaster.
“Elected women at every level of government, in every state, realize how important it is that we work together to create a culture of preparedness. Our women leaders from coast-to-coast are committed to being the backbone of making America better ‘prepared’ for future disasters,” stated Robin Read, NFWL’s President and CEO.
“Working with a group like NFWL is a natural fit and an exciting prospect for DRI International,” says “DRI President Al Berman. “Creating a culture of preparedness in both the public and private sectors is a vision shared by our two organizations. I am hopeful that our combined efforts will produce real change and raise awareness of these important issues.”
