ALA and New Orleans
Leslie Burger is back from her quick trip to New Orleans along with Michael Gorman, Keith Fiels, Diedre Ross and Deborah Bloom. She says it appears from what they all saw that the New Orleans Convention and Visitors Bureau along with the hotels are well prepared for the big conference. The Convention Center will be completely refurbished by the time of the conference. They also met with the asst. director of Public Health who reassured them about the city's capacity to handle emergency services.
