Attention ASHP Pharmacist Members - It's Time to Elect Delegates to ASHP's House
by Christopher W. Crank, PharmD, MS, BCPS; ICHP Executive Vice President
The ASHP Summer Meeting for 2022 will be held in Phoenix, Arizona from June 11-15. ASHP’s House of Delegates meets during the Summer Meeting. ICHP needs to elect two delegates to join Noelle Chapman, Andy Donnelly, and Carrie Vogler as the Illinois delegation for 2022 and then continue in 2023. ASHP’s House of Delegates is the policy making body within ASHP and is responsible for approving all ASHP position statements and practice guidelines.
Delegate candidates must be ASHP pharmacist members who plan on attending the ASHP Summer Meetings for both 2022 and 2023 at their own expense. In addition, they must attend one of the Chicago-based Regional Delegate Conferences each May.
Nominees must provide nomination statements (limited to 250 words or less), which include years of membership in ASHP, current employment position, pharmacy association memberships, volunteer experiences related to pharmacy associations, and any other relevant information the potential candidate would like to include. The ICHP Committee on Nominations will select up to six candidates for this year’s ballot. The two candidates receiving the highest vote totals will be credentialed as delegates for 2022 and 2023 and the remaining candidates will serve as alternate delegates for 2022 only.
This is a great opportunity for someone who has served at the state level for some time and wishes to move up within ASHP. It is probably not a good match for someone with no pharmacy association volunteer experience.
Elections will be held at the end of November, with all ASHP pharmacist members eligible to vote on-line. Election results will be announced in the February KeePosted
