The Mid-Atlantic Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (DC VOAD, DE VOAD, MD VOAD, PA VOAD, VA VOAD and WV VOAD) in partnership with FEMA Region III, invite you to join us for our inaugural conference. The theme of this year’s conference is:
How Can VOADs Better Understand the Science Behind and Effectively Respond to the Increasing Number of Undeclared Disasters
The conference will explore the climatology and metrological science and data that provide insight into the increased frequency and intensity of storms and will examine how the VOAD member organizations can effectively respond to the increasing number of disasters that fail to qualify for a federal disaster declaration.
