Earlier today Governor Nikki Haley declared a state of emergency and ordered evacuations for coastal regions, asking residents to relocate at least 100 miles inland.
In order to allow our members and guests the necessary time to prepare for an evacuation, we have canceled tomorrow's member gathering (Oct. 5) at the Gibbes Museum in Charleston. We were excited to see so many of you and will certainly reschedule this special event. Look for new details in the coming days. Our Midlands Board Leadership Summit is still on for next Tuesday, Oct. 11.
Two keys to weather safety are to prepare for the risks and to act on those preparations when alerted by emergency officials. To help our members with preparations, we have compiled a few helpful resources.
If you are a SCANPO member providing direct services during and after this storm, let us know and we'll be sure to share the information on social media.
Be safe everyone!
