Association Leadership


The Solve ME/CFS Initiative (SMCI) – formerly CFIDS Association of America – is governed by an elected Board of Directors comprised of dedicated men and women who volunteer their time, knowledge and breadth of experience to advance the Association’s mission to make ME/CFS understood, diagnosable and treatable.

The President & CEO leads SMCI’s professional staff in implementing Board policy and carrying out strategic and operating plans adopted by the Board.

Our Research Advisory Council helps guide and shape our research program.
