MEVOAD is an umbrella organization comprised of various state agencies and private organizations. Each member organization maintains its own identity and independence, yet pledges to work cooperatively with other member organizations to improve disaster and emergency service and to eliminate unnecessary service duplications.

There are two levels of membership: full membership with voting privileges, and associate membership without voting privileges.
