    The Communications Supervisor will not contact the Director of Membership in the event of a disaster. This is because the Director of Membership is not directly involved in the communication aspect of the organization and their role does not pertain to handling emergency situations. The Communications Supervisor would likely prioritize contacting individuals who are directly responsible for managing and coordinating communication efforts during a disaster, such as the Communications Manager and Director of Communications. The Administrative Assistant may also be contacted for administrative support during such situations.
