CoPVA Meetup members,
Our February Meetup is February 29th at 6pm at the Colorado Media School (https://www.google.com/maps/place/404+S+Upham+St,+Lakewood,+COemail@example.com,-105.0803882,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m2!3m1!1s0x876b80df7128016b:0x330827d331d44fda?hl=en).
Our own Secretary, Samir Valeja (http://www.fema.gov/media-library-data/7258847c-3e56-4490-b010-c1659a7c6487/62719_medium.jpg), is our presenter for the evening.
For the last eight years, Samir Valeja has served the people of the United States by traveling to federally declared disaster areas to create videos that help devastated communities build back stronger, smarter, and safer. From Sandy and Irene on the East coast To Ike and Isaac along the Gulf, to the earthquake and tsunami in American Samoa, Samir’s work has taken him to each of our borders and beyond.
Despite working in extremely challenging conditions, Samir manages to tell compelling stories that help raise awareness and money for those in need. His latest project, "The Backbone of Recovery," quickly became one of the most widely viewed FEMA videos of all time.
Come join Samir as he shares stories of his adventures, talks about gear, and shows some of his work.
As always we'll start our meeting by seeing what you've crafted. Bring a video to share!
Dinner is always provided
