50 State VOAD Community

Pleased to report that Ray, Rene, Joanne, and I are attending the annual conference of the National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (NVOAD) here in Norfolk, Virginia.

This is the 20th annual conference, and befitting the theme, Mountains to Sea, VisionLink is proud to release its 50 State VOAD Community project.  As a national NVOAD partner, VisionLink is contributing a web site for every state VOAD, as well as the enterprise system behind the scenes to integrate and unify every one of these state sites into a cohesive national system.  Even better: every one of these state sites is already built and is ready for state-specific training and customization.


Deploying initial sites with branding, public and private information, and key contact information, the next wave will see situational maps, resource and assets directories and more.  Help Desk services are being provided by the national VOAD office, as the VisionLink team provides the portal templates, training, system and server resources, bandwidth and more.

If you are the state lead and you have not registered yet for your state's training, do so here.
