Looking For Some Leaders
How would you like to run for an ICHP Office?
by Scott A. Meyers, Executive Vice President
Every year, ICHP elects new members to its Board of Directors. As existing officers complete their terms, they often move up to higher offices or move on for a variety of reasons not the least being that they’ve completed the highest offices of President-Elect, President and Immediate Past President. So every year the ICHP Committee on Nominations searches for new leaders who are dedicated to “Advancing Excellence in Pharmacy!” to step up to carry on the business of the Council. That’s ICHP’s mission by the way.
This year is no exception. With Travis Hunerdosse completing his term as Immediate Past President and several other offices up for election, there are five offices that will need two candidates to run. While Board Members David Martin, Bernice Man and Kristine VanKuiken may opt to run for a second term as Directors of Educational Affairs, Marketing Affairs, and Technician Representative, respectively, we can’t be sure until they give us the thumbs up. And even if they do decide to run again, the Committee on Nominations will be seeking a second candidate to provide a choice for ICHP members.
Below is a list of the offices open for election in the fall of 2019. All the elected candidates will begin their term at the 2020 Annual Meeting, with the exception of the President-Elect, who assumes office immediately. So each new leader will have almost a year to train for their new job and be coached by our current Board Members. You don’t have to run that race unprepared!
- Director-Elect of the Division of Educational Affairs
- Director-Elect of the Division of Marketing Affairs
- Technician Representative-Elect
- NPN Chair-Elect
