Rebuilding New Orleans – Marking the 10th Anniversary of Hurricane Katrina
Wednesday, September 2, 2015
Early in the morning on August 29, 2005 Hurricane Katrina struck the Gulf Coast of the United States. When the storm made landfall, it had a Category 3 rating, brought sustained winds of 100-140 miles per hour and stretched over 400 miles. Katrina pummeled huge parts of Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama, but the desperation was most concentrated in New Orleans. While the storm itself did a great deal of damage, its aftermath was catastrophic.
In honor of the 10 year Anniversary of this devastating event, The Standard Club welcomes, Arnie Fielkow, twice-elected New Orleans City Council President (2006-2011); Michael Hecht, President and CEO of GNO, Inc.; and Connie Kowal, Vice President of Marketing, New Orleans Saints; to discuss New Orleans – before, during and after Hurricane Katrina. After years of recovery and rebuilding efforts, the people of New Orleans have made great strides in keeping their city alive. Through education reform, recreation and economic development, New Orleans has become an economically viable and livable city that continues to plan for its future.
Time: 11:30 AM Reception / 12:00 PM Luncheon / 12:30 PM Panel Discussion
