Restart Your Practice Toolkit (Word Document)
A summary of the topics is below.
This is just a first pass at a basic toolkit that I would like to share with each of you; I think this could be shared with NAD, BAD, RAD also, but I wouldn’t presume to know exactly who to share it with. I am working on getting 50 copies of Peachtree or QuickBooks accounting software, so far I’ve identifed a little bit of information from them but it’s going to take a few more days I think to really get any definiative answer from them.

I think it would be great if everyone could take the opportunity to make this resource available jointly. I think this is a historic moment for that to happen and provide a tangible resource and action to members of each organization that were effected.
There shouldn’t be any financial impact and I think it could be handled with respect, discretion if needed, and a strong sense of support not charity.
I won’t send this out to anyone else right now, but I have solicited donations on katrinaterps for those who have extra copies of QuickBooks, Peachtree, MS Office, etc.
You may reply directly or to the group as you see fit.
