Colorado Voluntary Organizations Active in Disasters (COVOAD) held elections for its officers at its annual meeting this past March. The Chair, Co-Chair and Secretary positions were all up for election. The COVOAD membership elected Deborah Foote (formerly Colburn), of the Colorado Veterinary Medical Foundation, to serve as the new Chair for COVOAD. Kristy Judd of Metro Volunteers was elected to fill the position of COVOAD Secretary. Elizabeth DiPaolo from the Mile High Chapter of the American Red Cross was re-elected as Vice Chair. Sherry Manson of The Salvation Army, who just completed the first of a two year term, will remain on as Treasurer for COVOAD. COVOAD would like to thank Michael Bright (former Chair) and Tracy Hays (former Secretary) for their years of service to COVOAD!
