Mid-Atlantic VOAD Conference

April 8-9, state VOAD organizations from every state in FEMA Region 3 came together at Cacapon State Park in West Virginia. 

Monday, Chris Gloninger, Senior Scientist for Woods Hole Group, shared the science behind human cause climate change, and the real life impacts on infrastructure and daily life. 

On Tuesday the group heard panelists from VA, MD, WV, DC, PA, and DE discuss strategies to adapt to our changing climate and increased disaster frequency. 

Time spent together talking informally was invaluable and we look forward to the event again next year.

“And of course the unique highlight this year was being able to witness the solar eclipse together!” ..Julia Frank, PAVOAD President
