The success of any organization, for profit or not for profit, is measured by its leadership. As organizational leaders, we value the commitment, vision and passion our board members bring. The board of directors for Sickle Cell Disease Association of America Inc. (SCDAA) looks to those who serve–or have served–so passionately, to nominate qualified individuals to the board of directors for SCDAA.

Areas of expertise that are needed include:

  • Fundraising experience
  • Financial management and budget oversight
  • Social media and marketing
  • Executive management
  • Legal experience: with contracts or human resources
  • Strategic planning: short- and long-term planning and implementation
  • Diversity implementation: recruitment of the next generation of board members from a broad range of cultural backgrounds

Board of directors and committee meetings are generally held in the evenings, between 6-8 p.m. EST, but are subject to change as warranted. Board members are expected to attend board meetings and serve on at least one of the committees.

If you are qualified and able to meet the above requirements, or if you know of a qualified potential candidate that you wish to nominate to the SCDAA board, please send your/their name, contact information and a brief bio to Phoelicia Blagmon, at with “SCDAA Board Nominee” in the subject line.

**Nominees and bios are due no later than July 26, 2024.

Thank you in advance for your participation in this important effort and we look forward to hearing from you.
