Disaster Response Coordinators Meet
By Frank D. Bondurant
On Sunday, March 7, local conference Disaster Response coordinators, along with their leadership teams, gathered at the Columbia Union Conference office for their annual advisory. The meeting was largely dedicated to planning for the April 23-25 unionwide disaster training weekend to be held at Tranquil Valley Retreat Center in New Jersey, and appointing local conference coordinators to represent Adventist Community Services at their local state level. Six of our eight local conferences were represented, including Allegheny East Conference, Chesapeake, Mountain View, Ohio, New Jersey, and Potomac. Each coordinator shared a 2009 yearend report of Disaster Response activities in their local conferences. For more information about the upcoming training, click here.
