Dear NFBPA Family...
We have all read about or seen the horrible devastation brought about by Hurricane Harvey, especially in the states of Texas and Louisiana.

Images of those suffering during this have been not only painful for us to see, but hard to fathom unless we, family members or close friends have personally experienced a natural disaster of this magnitude.

Our thoughts and prayers are with anyone who may have lost a loved one, been injured or displaced and have not been able to return home to the Houston area.
The National Forum of Black Public Administrators has members throughout Texas and Louisiana, with the Houston chapter being one of our largest. We applaud Mayor Sylvester Turner and his staff for their expert leadership throughout the past few challenging days. We also salute the many public servants  throughout both states who are weathering this storm with the unbending determination to ensure the safety of all residents.
