State/Territory VOAD membership is an act of cooperation that provides your organization with communication tools to collaborate with other State/Territory VOAD members on disaster relief coordination. State/Territory VOAD membership will change the way you are able to serve communities in need.

Below are some benefits of State/Territory VOAD membership:

Access to Resources, Training, and Other Learning Opportunities

Committees/Task Forces

Members and Partners gather around topical issues and programmatic activities to improve the delivery of services throughout the disaster cycle and to further create a climate for cooperation.

Incident Response and Recovery Coordination

In support of our member’s work to respond to a disaster or help a community recover, we help coordinate and facilitate communication and actions among member organizations, emergency management agencies, and other organizations.
