CONFERENCE HISTORY
In 2010, the Texas Citizen Corps Program and Texas Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (Texas VOAD) are pleased to partner to merge their respective annual conferences.  Citizen Corps affiliate partner - Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) will be adding value to this conference by bringing professional speakers and workshops in public health preparedness issues.

By bringing Citizen Corps and Texas VOAD together, 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, 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.
