ICHP is developing a network of members from hospitals and health system facilities to serve as a “point person” or “Champion” for the organization. The purpose of these Champions is to help ICHP improve the delivery of high quality services to its members; recruit, expand and retain members; and better connect the organization to the membership.

NEW! - Champions Incentive Program
Any Champion who signs in for 50% or more of the Champion webinars offered during the period of August to August will receive $35 in ICHP bucks to use toward membership or meeting registration. Other perks for being a Champion include recognition at state-wide meetings, special gifts at select meetings, and a great way to be involved in ICHP. Take advantage of the great CE offered.

ICHP Profile - Alicia Juska, ICHP Champion at Swedish Covenant Hospital
"Being an active member of ICHP allows you to build a network of pharmacists with whom you can share ideas in order to learn about the profession, what is new, and what challenges are facing us in the future. Also, it is fun to reconnect with friends from school or previous colleagues working at other organizations." - Alicia
ICHP Profile - Jennifer Splawski, ICHP Champion at NorthShore University Health System-Glenbrook
"I think it’s very important to give back to the profession. When I was a student, I had fabulous mentors who made me who I am today. I wanted to give back to the profession in the same way that my mentors did. In addition, by being part of a professional organization, we have an opportunity to create change. It is easier to create change with a body of like-minded people than it is as an individual. Lastly, networking is also important in pharmacy. Opportunities are not as plentiful as they once were and networking with people who have more experience than you can provide countless opportunities." -Jennifer
ICHP Profile - Dave Lamb, ICHP Champion at OSF Saint Anthony
"I think I owe it to my profession to be involved professionally in the organization and to support the organization. The benefits of being involved are being able to support and advocate for the profession, opportunity for continuing education, and having a voice to express an opinion of the needs of the profession." - Dave
All sessions are half hour and worth 0.5 CEUs. Programs and CPE Instructions for our most recent and upcoming programs below.
