CONFERENCE HISTORY

In 2010, the Texas Citizen Corps Program and Texas Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (Texas VOAD) partnered to merge their respective annual conferences.  Citizen Corps affiliate partner - Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) also added value to the conference by bringing professional speakers and workshops in public health preparedness issues. Over 320 people were in attendance.

By bringing Citizen Corps and Texas VOAD together again in 2011, the Texas Unites Conference will provide additional training opportunities, discipline tracks, and continuing education credits to participants. At a time when conferences and trade shows across the country are experiencing a decline in attendance due to budget cuts, rising travel expenses, and concerns over impact to productivity, more and more conference planners are recognizing that a compelling, high-impact agenda is the key to drawing in a large crowd of qualified professionals. The result will be one of the largest annual professional, volunteer and emergency management training summits in Texas to include all Citizen Corps, VOAD, MRC and other affiliate partner programs.
