A: ...I served in multiple positions before moving to the International Services Department as a staffing associate with the newly formed International Disaster Response Unit in 2001.



ARCAN is independent from the American Red Cross but it is our Red Cross experiences that connect us. Our vision is to unite around the ideals, the humanitarian mission and all the other things we value most about being a part of the Red Cross: the service, the global perspective, the learning and most of all, the people. Membership is open to former American Red Cross employees of all ages.
