BCA promotes and facilitates an interactive, collegial, supportive, and non-competitive relationship among its members as a means of encouraging individual member and collective success and the promotion of ongoing, overall industry development.

Examples:

  • Discussion Forums: an online resource for members to ask and share information. The discussions range across all blood center operations including donor services, information technology, and hospital relations, to name a few.
  • Events: several times a year, BCA sponsors member-only networking conferences focused on particular areas of operation. Diverse and knowledgeable speakers anchor the conferences, but significant time is allotted for panel discussions and interactive best practices forums. The following groups have meetings scheduled on an annual or bi-annual basis:

• Donor Services/Collections
• Donor Recruitment
• Quality Management
• Supply Chain Management
• Technical Directors
• Medical Directors
• Benchmarking

  • Webinars and teleconferences: throughout the year these virtual exchanges are typically designed around specific needs and/or requests of members.

Members and/or Supplier Partners interested in learning more about or discussing networking and/or educational opportunities should contact Jennifer Ficenec.
