ANNUAL LEADERSHIP SUMMIT & GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF PATIENTS, CAREGIVERS AND CBOs.
The Summit is the primary meeting of the Sickle Cell Community Consortium. Every March all Consortium partners travel to Atlanta Georgia to participate in the Leadership Summit and to convene the annual General Assembly of Patients, Caregivers and CBOs.
This meeting serves three purposes:
1. CBO Best Practices and Expert Advocacy Training – Lectures, workshops, roundtable discussions, and panels all focused on supporting the development and sustainability of strong, effective CBOs and independent patient/caregiver advocates.
2. Consortium annual Business Meeting – Reports from the 10 main infrastructure committees and review of all items placed on the Business Docket. All elections, addendums and amendments occur during the Business Meeting.
3. Convene the General Assembly of Patients, Caregivers and CBOs.
The General Assembly is the primary organ and decision-making body of the Consortium. Comprised of representatives from all partner CBOs, as well as, independent patients/caregivers, this group identifies and prioritizes problems, needs and gaps in the sickle cell community, and then works collectively with other partnered groups to define and execute mutually beneficial and sustainable solutions.
