Our hearts go out to all affected by the historic flooding in Louisiana that has impacted so many people, including a number of Port of New Orleans employees (though not the Port itself). It is with NOLA’s resilience that the Port’s administration has encouraged us to proceed with this summit announcement, knowing the Port, its staff and the community will be ready for our October visit.
We look forward to seeing you October 27th.
