The North Carolina Bankers Association has established the NCBA Hurricane Florence Relief Fund through the NCBA Foundation to benefit bank employees who have suffered damage to their homes, cars and personal property in connection with Hurricane Florence. The NCBA and ICBA are encouraging banks from across the country to support this initiative in addition to the contributions they are making to charitable organizations involved in Hurricane Florence recovery and relief efforts.
Regional partnerships have formed across the United States to focus on homeland security and emergency management issues with the public sector.
These public/private partnerships formed originally within the banking/finance sector, but several have developed into multi-sector coalitions.
RPCfirst, the Regional Partnership Council, is an umbrella organization formed to foster collaboration among these organizations.
