Dear LABEOC Partners and Friends:
We have been invited to participate in a national survey of business perspectives on post-disaster resilience and recovery, which has been created by the Business Colleges at UL Lafayette, Auburn University, and Ohio State University.
Given our experience in disaster impact and recovery (both recent and historical), our membership can provide an important contribution to this work. Please take a few minutes to read the following description and follow the link to the online survey. The survey results will be presented at the 2018 National Hurricane Conference, and we will provide the findings through the LABEOC Newsletter.
As always, thank you for your support.

Private-Public or Public-Private? While we know collaboration is critical during a disaster, and we all have examples of when it works or doesn't work. Unfortunately, businesses and communities lack empirical evidence to support development and improvement of guidelines and best practices. As part of an ongoing effort to build this evidence, we are asking you to participate in a research study on organizational resilience and public-private collaboration after a disaster.


The survey will take around 15 minutes to complete. All information collected in this survey will be held confidentially and securely and used only by the researchers for educational purposes. Results of this research will be shared at the 2018 National Hurricane Conference in Orlando.


DISCLAIMER: Participation in this study is voluntary, and does not present foreseeable risks. If you have any questions, please contact Colin Gabler at, Geoffrey Stewart at, or Glenn Richey at


Thank you for your participation.
