Conference Disaster Coordinators Gather

Conference Disaster Coordinators at their Annual Meeting
The Rev. Estelle Margarones, co-chair of the MACUCC Disaster Resource & Response Team and Barbara Gregory, Rhode Island Conference Disaster Coordinator, recently attended the UCC Conference Disaster Coordinators annual meeting (April 4-7) in Oakland, California. The event is always held in an area that has experienced disruption due to disaster. Attendees were given the opportunity to learn about the challenges facing communities impacted by wildfires in Sonoma County.

Margarones offered a presentation on developing and working with a Conference Disaster Resource and Response Team. Zach Wolgemuth, UCC Disaster Ministries Executive and Chair of National VOAD (Volunteer Organizations Active in Disaster) said: "CDCs are the backbone of this ministry which is why this event is so important for all involved."  Jim Tilbe, the other Massachusetts Conference co-chair, was unable to attend.
