Presbyterian Disaster Assistance is guided in its policy making, strategic planning, and program development by an advisory committee of seven members elected by the General Assembly. Committee members possess a variety of skills, knowledge and experience and are considered and integral part of the program.
The term of service on the PDA Advisory Committee is normally two or three years and the commitment is to attend two meetings per year and to be available by conference call between meetings.
We are always seeking persons with special skills and knowledge in the areas of communication/public relations, financial management, and information systems management. Prior experience in disaster response and international relief ministries is very helpful.
Member selections are made through the General Assembly Nominating Committee process. If you are interested in being on the PDA Advisory Committee, please contact Valerie Small.
