The CFIDS Association of America, Inc.
April 11, 2011

The CAA has been underperforming and poorly representing patients as an advocacy and educational organization for many years. Much of the donated money goes towards paying an overinflated salary for the CEO at the expence of advocay and research initiatives. The CEO also is not well qualified eduactionally ( bachelors degree) to be leading this non-profit.
In summary it is a poorly functioning org which has no measurements in place for sucess and an overpaid CEO.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Poor educartion of doctors and poorly targeted research.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Hire a new CEO and research director.

MY ROLE:
Professional with expertise in this field & I donated money.
