As a member of the New Orleans Preservation Coalition (NOPC), you will become part of a network of individuals, organizations, first responders, and emergency managers dedicated to sustaining and protecting our area’s unique cultural heritage. Within this network, we offer a wide range of professional guidance, shared knowledge, educational opportunities, and extended support to prepare and respond to emergencies and disasters when they occur within the cultural community in New Orleans.
Individual members include individuals who are connected to any of the following areas: cultural heritage, performing and visual arts, emergency preparedness, disaster response and recovery. An individual membership in the NOPC grants access to workshops, events, and resources designed to support the ongoing preservation of the unique cultural heritage in the New Orleans region. As an individual member you can also join committees and work with a dedicated team of individuals committed to preparedness and recovery. Become a part of the first organization of its kind in New Orleans dedicated exclusively to sustaining our shared cultural heritage through emergency preparedness and disaster response!
If you would like to sign up more than one person at a time, order the number of people you’d like to sign up below. You will be prompted to add information about one contact. After you check out, we will send you a link to share with each new individual member so they can provide their contact information.
Institutional membership offers organizations all of the benefits of Individual Membership, as well as the option to participate in a disaster response network called the New Orleans Alliance for Response (NOAfR)*. Members at this level include institutions, organizations, non-profits, small businesses, sole proprietorships, and agencies in the Greater New Orleans area with missions in any of the following areas: cultural heritage, performing and visual arts, emergency preparedness, and disaster response and recovery. The option to join the NOAfR as an institution involves signing a Mutual Aid Agreement. This provides 24/7 access to a disaster response supply cache and a network of other NOAfR members who offer mutual aid in a time of crisis. Each institution signing the MAA will:
Appoint one representative to be a point of contact and committee representative
Have NOPC dues in good standing to access supplies and mutual aid support
That’s it! You do not have to sign the MAA to join the NOPC at the institutional level, but we encourage you to consider the benefits and opt in.
Please click the buttons below for the MAA and Supply Cache list.
*Though an individual member cannot sign the MAA, no member of the NOPC will be turned away in a time of crisis. Should an individual member be facing a disaster, a request for mutual aid is welcome. All assistance will be handled on a case by case basis.
