Michael Rubinger, a lifelong leader in community development who has served as president and CEO of LISC for 17 years, announced that he will resign from his post as of June 2016. Under Rubinger’s guidance, LISC’s investment to revive low-income communities has grown steadily to nearly $1 billion a year. The LISC board will begin a search for his successor in the coming months.
We are approaching the 10 year anniversary of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. SMHA remembers LISC for providing resources and support without being asked.
Sandy’s first call to me after the storms was just the beginning. She wanted me to come to Washington to be mentored by experts and learn how “not to make mistakes” when dealing with disaster. Her networking resulted in major funds for SMHA’s Rural Recovery Response.
But we remember you for your support to SMHA through the many years of rebuilding. We especially want to send you a very special thank you for helping SMHA Rebuild Louisiana Better Than Before!
Your support throughout these years helped make it possible!
We Still Remember!
