CEO of Lutheran Social Services to attend White House event

Robert L. Sanderson looks forward to learning more about Obama Administration priorities on agency’s key issues

FARGO, ND – Robert L. Sanderson, CEO of Lutheran Social Services of North Dakota, will attend an event at The White House on Oct. 28 as part of a day‐long meeting with other leaders from Lutheran health and human service organizations across the country.

Lutheran Services in America, which helped organize the event, expects more than 160 participants from 30 states and 50 different Lutheran organizations. The leaders are coming to Washington to receive briefings from Obama Administration officials, attend issue‐specific sessions with policy makers, and raise questions, concerns and recommendations about social service provision. Attendees also will participate in a White House tour.

“I hope to learn more about the Obama Administration’s priorities on key issues such as disaster recovery and rural housing that are facing Lutheran Social Services and the North Dakota communities we support,” Sanderson said.

Lutheran Social Services of North Dakota is a nonprofit social services agency serving North Dakotans from offices in five cities with 19 programs that strengthen individuals, families and communities without regard to clients’ race, religion, gender or economic status.
