MA VOAD Zoom meeting

Start Date: 2021-06-29

Description: Monthly MA VOAD Zoom meeting. 23 member agencies participated. Membership requirements, member responsibilities and bylaw update were discussed. State and FEMA emergency preparedness websites were reviewed by MEMA and FEMA staff on the call. Hurricane activity for Massachusetts is projected to be 20% above normal. Atlantic coast hurricane activity is predicted to be 60% above normal! The American Red Cross in Massachusetts is resuming congregate shelter settings as of July 1 (back to pre-Covid mass sheltering, rather than current individual-hotel-rooms for victims/survivors). MA VOAD will continue monthly Zoom meetings and will resume two in-person member meetings per year beginning this fall.
