The Board of Directors of National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (“National VOAD”) is pleased to announce that April D. Wood has been named President & CEO of National VOAD, effective July 5, 2021.

Wood was selected as the next President & CEO of National VOAD following a rigorous national search, spearheaded by a Search Committee, comprised of seven members of the Board of Directors, in partnership with Koya Partners, an executive search firm that specializes in placing leaders in mission-driven roles.

Wood brings a deep passion for the mission of National VOAD and those affected by disaster. “I am honored to have the opportunity to work with the nation’s premier disaster relief and recovery organizations to foster collaboration; support diversity, equity and inclusion; and enable coordination to alleviate suffering caused by disasters,” said Ms. Wood.

Wood comes to National VOAD with nearly 20 years of non-profit experience leading national-level initiatives and cultivating executive partnerships. Most recently, Wood served as Senior Director, External Program Services, Disaster Operations for the American Red Cross National Headquarters.

“April brings to National VOAD a wealth of experience and the unique perspective of formerly serving as a National Member Representative, Board Member and chairperson of the Board. We could not be happier to have her lead National VOAD as we enter our next 50 years of improving effective delivery of services to all impacted by disaster,” said Board Chairperson Mike Manning.

National VOAD is a coalition of over 70 of the nation’s most reputable national organizations (faith-based, community-based, and other non-profit organizations) and 56 State/Territory VOADs, which represent Local/Regional VOADs and hundreds of other member organizations throughout the country. National VOAD promotes cooperation, communication, coordination, and collaboration, and fosters more effective delivery of services to communities affected by disaster.

One of the reasons to believe in God is that you can't have a rational conversation with people who don't. I am hoping you see the significance of my selection by Marquis Who's Who in America. What follows is a link to an interview about the arguments for God's existence and a number of reasons to believe in God: https://marquisradio.com/2020/06/08/davidroemer/ This is a link to my interview with Star Jones: https://youtu.be/TOULXbYQ3XQ This is a link to a press release summarizing the Star Jones interview: http://www.24-7pressrelease.com/press-release-service/475239 This is a link to my interview on a Catholic radio station: https://www.spreaker.com/episode/40232425 I was selected by this secular publisher because of my freedom of speech lawsuit against Lee Bollinger, President of Columbia U. I gave oral argument to the U. S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit on January 18, 2018. The podcast is on the court's website (case no. 17-818).

Hi all! Thank you for the terrific work you are doing! I am the Chair for Ventura County VOAD. How do I become a member of National VOAD?
MDR loads another load of hand sanitizer
As churches of the Pennsylvania Southeast Conference began to plan to resume in-person services the Conference staff was receiving requests for leads on hand sanitizer. Conference Minister Bill Worley and Conference Disaster Coordinator Karl Jones consulted to determine if the Conference could assist with this request. Karl accepted the task. The first option explored was to request 300 cases of hand sanitizer through a donation offer which came through FEMA. That option was not successful, but Karl persevered. He then learned that there were 50 gallon drums of hand sanitizer available through another donation being managed by FEMA. Karl and the Conference staff talked about asking for some drums. While processing how they would transfer sanitizer from 50 gallon drums to container more manageable, Karl discovered that one of the Conference’s PA Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster partners, MDR Disaster Relief, had acquired a shipment of barrels. In consultation with the MDR President Joe Ryan and the Conference staff a plan was developed where MDR volunteers would pump the sanitizer into one gallon jugs, MDR would deliver more than 270 gallon to the Conference office, from there the jugs would be distributed to the churches who had requested them. The plan was carried out perfectly by all involved with the Conference staff and volunteers delivering the sanitizer to pick-up points in each Association.
Hello VOAD from the American Red Cross in the Texas Panhandle.
I/we hope this can be of help with your VOAD efforts: #TotalAssetVisibility Anyone needing help rebuilding after a disaster (or for any other needs including food sharing and delivery, waste prevention, etc) can create their C'8 profile and Aid Needed post(s) here www.c8coordinate.com (work in progress) and those wanting to help can create their C'8 Aid Offer posts for direct donations as well. C'8 can also be used to coordinate things like restaurant, grocery store, pharmacy, etc deliveries to help reduce the need for people to leave their homes for the basics and it can be used to coordinate mobile medical professionals for at-home Coronavirus testing to reduce the need for people to leave their homes for testing as well, further empowering social distancing. What #AidCoordinationPlatform do you use and is it free, available to all, 100% transparent and purely altruistic? Is it an efficient and effective force-multiplier like C'8? Introducing C'8 - Coordinate, a purely altruistic, free and available to all international disaster (and other) aid coordination platform that unites all aid givers with all disaster victims and communities in need as well as with aid materials suppliers and the rest of the world that might be moved to give aid in some way from a distance. Among other things, C'8 facilitates direct, specific, immediate, zero overhead, 100% transparent aid donations in a game-changing way. Where Facebook is social, LinkedIn is business, etc, C’8 is one purely altruistic unified platform for aid coordination. I/we invite you to begin to use C'8 to help those at the top of your list of people you'd like to see receive aid/more aid.
Thank you to National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (National VOAD) for everything you do and have done to bring help to those in need. I admire you and want to send you some smiles! #StayWell
Any other VOADs out there building or using a wiki to collaborate on resource identification and sharing? We have started one for Santa Clara County and are thinking it would help avoid duplication of effort at higher levels. This is not for the public, it is for our participating agencies. They can choose what they might copy and share on their own sites. Big initial focus is on emotional/spiritual care resources -- sites, documents, on-line training; especially those that are free to access or share.
