Dear Colleagues,

If you have been affected in any way by Hurricane Harvey or Hurricane Irma, please know that the staff and your fellow members in the Insights Association are here to help you in any way they can.

The Chair of our Membership Committee, Jude Olinger (CEO of Olinger Group), went through the aftermath of Katrina. Here’s what he has to say:

Having personally experienced the devastation from Hurricane Katrina 12 years ago, I empathize with what many are experiencing. The CASRO staff and several members (now IA) reached out to me to offer their help and support. It was very heartening and encouraging to know that others in the industry cared and were willing to help. Many of them were from Texas in fact.

Hurricanes Harvey and Irma have caused the tables to turn and we know that many of you, our fellow IA members and colleagues, may need support in numerous ways once you are out of the danger zone and can assess your damage and calculate your needs.

Be assured that we stand ready to help you. Please contact us if we can help in any way.”

If you need temporary office space or have projects that need completing; have a phone center that is now inoperative; need legal advice; require project management support; or anything else that can help you get through these times and back on your feet, please do call on us.

You can do so by emailing Jennifer Ward at She will connect you with people who can help.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you, your staff and your families.

Simon Chadwick
