Governance and Leadership
The APhA Board of Trustees is responsible for broad direction setting of the Association.
Policy for APhA and the profession of pharmacy as a whole is developed by the APhA House of Delegates that meets each year at the APhA Annual Meeting & Exposition. The House is comprised of representatives from all major national pharmacy organizations, state pharmacy associations, federal pharmacy and APhA’s three academies:
- Practitioners in community, hospital, and more specialized areas belong to the Academy of Pharmacy Practice & Management (APhA-APPM).
- Scientists practicing in pharmaceutical, clinical, economic, and other areas of research belong to the APhA Academy of Pharmaceutical Research and Science (APhA–APRS).
- Students who are enrolled in a program at an accredited school of pharmacy belong to the Academy of Student Pharmacists (APhA-ASP).
Day-to-day activities of the 130 dedicated APhA professional staff are led by Executive Vice President & CEO Thomas E. Menighan, BPharm, MBA, ScD (Hon) and the senior management team:
