Update from Friday, 4/21/17


Hi Oregon VOAD Members and Partners,


Attached is the almost weekly Oregon VOAD update for Friday, April 21st


Topics and announcements in this week’s update includes:

  • The topic this week is on Collaboration which deserves a much longer and richer write-up than I provided.
  • Recent updates for meetings of our Community Organizations Active in Disaster.  Please schedule one of these meetings as they are valuable.
  • Remember to put the first meeting of the Emotional & Spiritual Care committee on your calendars, Wednesday, June 7th at the Red Cross building in North Portland.
  • A weekly update of training and workshop announcements and trainings gleaned from the pages of the weekly update from our Regional Disaster Preparedness Organization.


Our next Oregon VOAD meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, May 23rd from 1:00 to 3:30 p.m. at Oregon Food Bank-West, 1870 NW 173rd Ave., Beaverton, OR 97006.  We will conduct our annual officer elections at that time, so please participate either in person or by conference call
