Allilance Board Update
Alliance Seeking Board Nominations
by Eric Gray, CPA, Vice Chair, Hemophilia Alliance Board
The Hemophilia Alliance Board Nominating Committee is seeking applicants or suggested nominations to fill one vacancy on the board of directors, with the term beginning December 2021. For consideration by the nominating committee, applicants are to submit a letter of interest and resume or CV to email@example.com by end of day Friday, November 5, 2021. We seek to broadly represent our membership and are encouraging applicants from all regions and disciplines to apply.
Applicants or suggested nominees must be employed by a Hemophilia Treatment Center in good standing with the Hemophilia Alliance, support the Hemophilia Alliance mission, vision and programs, and be willing to share their knowledge and expertise with the Hemophilia Alliance, participating in bi-monthly board meetings.
Terms are for a 3-year period, not to exceed 2 consecutive terms. In a typical non-pandemic year, the Board meets six times per year, three via conference call and three in-person. Two of the in-person meetings occur at the Hemophilia Alliance membership meetings and one board retreat takes place in January. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Hemophilia Alliance Board and Leadership will continually assess the appropriate setting for all meetings. During 2021, one meeting was held in person and also provided a virtual attendance option.
The Hemophilia Alliance works to ensure member Hemophilia Treatment Centers have the expertise, resources and public support to sustain their integrated clinical and pharmacy services for individuals with bleeding and clotting disorders.
Through the work of the Hemophilia Alliance, the clinical and pharmacy programs of the Hemophilia Treatment Centers are integrated, stable and sustainable within a changing healthcare environment. They are trusted and respected as the preferred way to provide people with hemophilia and other bleeding disorders access to the full range of care they need.
