Held at Quiet Cannon in Montebello, CA, the final member orientation of the year was held for new and existing volunteer members. This meeting was an opportunity to receive an overview of the MRC Los Angeles unit, its national MRC, and the symbiotic relationship existing between MRC Los Angeles and the LA County Department of Public Health. Information was shared regarding the strategic priorities of the unit, deployment and notification procedures and the member code of conduct. An interactive Points-of-Dispensing (POD) activity also took place during the orientation. Also held on this day was the Advisory Meeting, in which the staff and advisory continued in its efforts to solidify a strategic direction, bringing further clarity and accuracy in its plans, goals and objectives.
