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. 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)*. If you join at the institutional level and sign the Mutual Aid Agreement, your organization will have 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. To join NOAfR, each institution must sign a Mutual Aid Agreement. 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
*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.
Your membership includes $1 to help cover our credit card processing fees.
