We asked David a few questions…

What about VOACC inspired you to join the Board of Directors?

I was inspired to join the Board of Directors to learn more about and contribute to the success of the great programs that VOACC operates. 

What are you looking forward to the most in your role on the Board?

To learn about the VOACC programs and contribute to the success of the programs and initiatives.

What does being “Called to Care” mean to you personally?

I believe everyone has unique talents and skills and Called to Care to me means being able to use one’s talents and skills to improve the lives or condition of those in need and empathizing with those in need.  As the saying goes, “But for the grace of God, there go I”.  The world can always use a little more compassion and empathy.
