Become A Partner

Should you become a Partner?

National VOAD recognizes that all sectors of society must work together to foster more resilient communities nationwide. We welcome substantive partnerships with federal disaster management and public health agencies with emergency support functions or roles, as well as with for-profit corporations, foundations, educational and research institutions, associations and other nongovernmental organizations.

  • Do you care about finding ways to more effective serve the nation’s disaster preparedness and response needs?
  • Do you understand why it is important for all sectors of society to work together to build more resilient communities?
  • Do you want to help grow and strengthen the VOAD movement?
  • Do you have resources for supporting the capacity development goals of National VOAD to more effectively support its members and serve its mission?

Then we would like to speak with you about National VOAD Partnership Opportunities!

Benefits of Partnership

National VOAD Partners enjoy full access to the programs and membership activities of National VOAD. This includes participation on committees, task forces and at the annual National VOAD Conference, access to training events and materials, and inclusion in pertinent planning discussions with government agencies. Within these venues, Partners have the opportunity to impact the development of policies, standards and program related procedures connected with disaster response and recovery. Participation at conferences provides Partners with full access to the National VOAD general membership, including representatives of state and local VOADs.

When disaster strikes, many of our Partners also work beside our members on response or recovery missions. Partners are invited to report information on their actions which we include in our reports to members, the emergency management community, and share with the communities we serve.

We promote positive national recognition and exposure for our Partners among the VOAD network and the national disaster response and recovery community.
