VACDaRN is a partnership of the Vermont Arts Council, the Vermont State Archives and Records Administration, and the Vermont Emergency Management Association. Coordination through this network enables artists as well as arts and heritage organizations to work together to share expertise and resources, mobilize response for mutual assistance during emergencies, and engage collectively with first responders and government emergency management agencies. 
Steering committee members embody the diversity of VACDaRN’s individual and organizational constituents.  Archivists, arts organizations, artists, conservators, educators, emergency managers, gallery directors, historic preservationists, historical society staff and volunteers, librarians, museum staff and volunteers, performing arts organizations, and town clerks are all represented.
