Jono Anzalone Named 2017 Meta-Leader of the Year
National Preparedness Leadership Initiative: It was a year to remember for preparedness and response leaders: hurricanes, fires, floods, shootings, and more challenged leaders and their organizations again and again. This made it a challenge to select a 2017 Meta-Leader of the Year as National Preparedness Leadership Initiative (NPLI) alumni were involved in many of these events.
Jono Anzalone (Cohort XI), Vice President for International Services at the American Red Cross, was selected for his ongoing to help communities better prepare for and respond to a wide range of disasters. While Red Cross involvement with storms in the U.S. gathered the most attention here, Anzalone was also involved in the response to extensive flooding in Southeast Asia.
