All The Ways You Can Be Involved

by Becky Ohrmund, CPhT, Pharmacy Technician Specialist; Northwestern Memorial Hospital; ICHP Technician Representative-elect

Hi, ICHP Technicians!!! 

Do you know all of the things that techs can do within ICHP? Below is just a short list of some of the Divisions that you can belong to as well as some of the Committees that you can join:  
  • Educational Affairs Division 
  • Government Affairs Division 
  • Marketing Affairs Division 
  • Organizational Affairs Division 
  • Professional Affairs Division 
  • Technology Committee 
  • KeePosted Committee 
  • Pharmacy Tech Topics™ Steering Committee 
  • Annual Meeting and Spring Meeting Planning Committees 
  • Technician Network

If you are looking for a short-term opportunity, consider one of the following:
  • Annual and Spring Meeting Speakers 
  • Annual and Spring Meeting Moderators 
  • Annual and Spring Meeting Registration Desk Volunteers 
  • Spring Meeting Poster Presenter 
  • Spring Meeting Poster Abstract Reviewer 
  • Spring Meeting Poster Judge 
  • Legislative Day Participant 
  • Legislative Day Group Leader 
  • Authors for the KeePosted or Pharmacy Tech Topics™ 
  • Editors and Peer Reviewers for articles in the KeePosted or Pharmacy Tech Topics™ 
I first got involved with ICHP when I volunteered for the Spring planning committee. I have been on all of the planning committees since that first one and I love being able to help plan out the technician sessions at the meetings. This allows me to pick topics that are being presented from Technicians by Technicians. I have also been to Legislative Day, served as a Moderator for meetings, and completed peer reviews. If any of the above opportunities jump out at you as something you want to do, please contact me or go to the ICHP website and click on Volunteer sign up under the About Us tab. A member of the Division or Committee that you would like to join will contact you with more information. If you would like to be a part of the planning committee, please reach out to myself or David Martin (Director of Educational Affairs).

Remember that how far you want to go starts with you! ■
