Voice of Action Board
There are many positive effects of being involved in your community: from stress reduction to promoting personal growth and self-esteem.
Being part of the member-run Voice of Action Board (VOAB) is another great way to play an active role in your care and community at CODAC. This volunteer committee of members provides solution-focused feedback about services at CODAC. They also join staff at advocacy and community outreach events.
Members of VOAB:
- Have the opportunity to build new, supportive relationships with peers in recovery
- Learn how to delegate and responsibly complete tasks
- Improve personal communication and problem solving skills
- And give back to the community through volunteer work and advocacy
How to Join
Current and past CODAC members are welcome to join the VOAB. Simply attend VOAB meetings which are open to all CODAC members.
VOAB meetings take place on the second Tuesday of each month from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. at 630 N. Alvernon Way.
The VOAB adheres to a strict confidentiality policy. The policy states that all board members will not share information about staff or members to anyone outside of board meetings. This private information includes sensitive topics regarding culture as well as verbal and written communication. Breaches of confidentiality constitutes a serious breach of professional obligations, and can result in instant dismissal from the VOAB. This information is included in the agreement signed by all board members.
