GPLI Meetings for 2013-2014
Next Meeting: November 13, 2013
Disaster Preparedness for Seniors in Facilities and in the Community
GPLI goes to Somerset Gardens of Plainview for our November Meeting. Hosted by Paul Wasser of Somerset Gardens, this meeting will focus on the topic of disaster preparedness, from the perspective of facility directors as well as from County Directors of Offices of Emergency Management. The meeting will begin at 6:30 with a light supper provided by Somerset Gardens, and some GPLI business matters, including the election of a new board member.
It has been many years since GPLI held a meeting in Nassau County, and we hope our Nassau members will join us that evening. Somerset Gardens is located at 150 Sunnyside Blvd. in Plainview, just off the LIE at Exit 46. We will also be recruiting new members that night, for our low annual fee of $30. Join our officers, executive board, continuing members as well as our guest speakers for a stimulating meeting of general interest.
Guest speakers include:
Michael Acari, Nassau County Office of Emergency Management
