Our next FL VOAD meeting is Tuesday, January 31st, as part of the Florida Emergency Preparedness Association Annual Meeting in Orlando. We will meet from 1:00 - 2:30 for an after action report with particular focus on Crisis Clean up, followed by updates on where we are with recovery. From 3:00 - 5:00 we will do our regular business meeting.
In addition, there will be a recovery exercise Tuesday morning. It would be great to have as many FL VOAD members in attendance as possible for both the exercise and the afternoon meetings. FEPA is giving us a one-day conference registration of $100 for Florida VOAD members who wish to attend both.
