Join the Sahana Software Foundation for SahanaCamp LA to be held on October 24-25 at the City of Los Angeles’ Emergency Operations Center Media Center Conference Room.  SahanaCamp LA is a free 2-day program designed to provide individuals and organizations with an understanding of the needs for managing information in response to disasters paired with a practical technical workshop to provide instruction in how Sahana Software can be deployed within and across organizations.

We have previously organized SahanaCamps in India, Vietnam, Taiwan and Portugal - all with great affect and impact.  Most recently, after attending our SahanaCamp@ISCRAM in Lisbon this past May, the Portuguese National Volunteer Firefighting Association (Bombeiros) has been deploying Sahana Software as a national coordinating system for their organization with the assistance of the Sahana Software Foundation.  We hope to forge similar partnerships in Southern California through this program.

During SahanaCamp LA , we will be using our Sahana Eden Open Source Emergency Management Platform to explore solutions for the Los Angeles region, including needs for: volunteer management, donations management, registering organizations, asset management, inventory management, request management, project tracking and assessments.

I am attaching a brief flyer about the event with additional information.

Most information about the event is now posted both on our web site here: http://sahanafoundation.org/attend-sahanacamp-la/ and on EventBrite which we are using for the registration system for the event: http://sahanacampla.eventbrite.com. 

Please feel free to share this information and invitation with anyone you think might be interested in attending this event.

I look forward to seeing you in a few weeks for SahanaCamp LA.  Please let me know if you have any questions.

Best regards,
