Leadership & Governance

A Break Through Operating Model

The MedSurplus Alliance operating model is designed to leverage the expertise and resources of medical donation stakeholders and avoid the organizational bureaucracy and administrative burdens that often create a barrier to innovation and engagement. To help accomplish this goal the MedSurplus Alliance recently became a program of Avancera Partners.  The mission of Avancera Partners is to “radically improve outcomes of its charitable programs and their stakeholders through effective collaborations across networks, shared resources and expertise, and by applying online solutions for improved impact and results.”  Avancera is a 501c3 non-profit that is governed by an experienced Board of Directors comprised of social and business entrepreneurs who manage the organization’s fiduciary responsibilities.  


MedSurplus Alliance Leadership Council

The MedSurplus Alliance staff and programs operate under the guidance and inspiration of a cross-sector Leadership Council that includes medical surplus recovery organization leaders and stakeholders from the healthcare, private, public, manufacturing and academic sectors.
