This was my answers from them when I tried to obtain information.........

The Key Words Here Is "VOLUNTEER" and "NON-PROFIT " .

So the definition of a "Volunteer Coordination Body" does not include any of 
there time, recourses or possibly out of pocket expenses, very interesting.

So maybe the next time the gulf coast gets it's ass kicked we will all 
charge for our time recourses and out of pocket expenses to aid in there
