ASA Encourages Members to Support Hurricane Ida Recovery

The devastation caused by Hurricane Ida in Louisiana and neighboring states is significant, and it will likely take months for those affected to recover—if not longer.

This is a developing situation, and ASA will be working with members in the days ahead to assess how staffing firms have been affected, what they need, and how the industry can assist with recovery efforts.

In the meantime, ASA members are encouraged to consider donating to the American Red Cross in support of Hurricane Ida rescue and relief efforts.
