Message from Frank Saladis regarding Hurricane Sandy

As many of you know, our IPM Day founder and leader Frank Saladis lives with his family on Staten Island in New York, which was hit very hard by Hurricane Sandy last night. They are without power and Internet and many people have been inquiring about him. Via limited text messaging, he has asked me to convey a message to you. This is not verbatim.

My family is safe. Please look for opportunities to help your friends and neighbors in the impacted areas. We need to bring the entire project management community together and find ways to help others in need. It is a time to really show the talents and abilities of the project manager.

Right now there is very little phone service and Internet access is limited. Use text messages to communicate with family and friends if possible.

It will be a day before public transportation is working. Driving is very dangerous. Traffic lights are out everywhere.


Frank was scheduled to be presenting at an IPM day event in South Africa this week. That and many other IPM Day events will be impacted by this disaster. I will continue to post Frank’s updates here.
