Emergency Manager for California local government for 20 years. I managed a 600 person disaster volunteer program, conducted many community education sessions and wrote plans, policies and procedures.
I've served on the Board of CADRE for 4 years. Received 501(c)3 status a year and a half ago. We don't have an ED, so I'm doing everything. We're making progress but there is a lot of work to do and I don't have experience in the nonprofit sector, fundraising, board recruitment, etc.
