About Us

VISION: The vision for the Verona Municipal Alliance Committee (VMAC) is an informed, healthy, vibrant community free of misuse and abuse of alcohol, tobacco, and other substances.

MANDATE: VMAC is designed to support programs in the Township of Verona that would not otherwise be offered.  The mandate under the grant from GCADA is to combat underage use, and all abuse, of alcohol and other substances.

MISSION: The mission of VMAC is to work toward community wellness through the celebration and cultivation of the compassion, character, and confidence that individuals, especially our youth, need to make good choices in all aspects of their lives.
