Leadership

The NCA Leadership Team consists of the following:

Board of Directors

The NCA Board of Directors are voting members of the NCA Leadership team. These members includes 2 elected representatives from each FEMA region and a number of at large numbers. This ensures that the NCA represents the geographically diversity of the CERT program as well as program diversity.

FEMA Observers

FEMA Preparedness staff at each FEMA region and FEMA HQ participate on the NCA Leadership team as non-voting observers. This ensures a strong partnership and synergy between the NCA and FEMA
