Call to action: Submit nominations for 2016 awards and applications for 2016 election

If you know someone worthy of recognition OR if you’ve ever wanted to get involved in APhA, NOW is the time to act.

We’re a highly member-driven organization. Volunteers lead APhA, and our staff works very hard to execute the vision and plans of these volunteers. We like to hold up the examples set by our exemplary volunteers through the most robust awards program in pharmacy.

The only way we stay an awesome member-driven organization is through the continued volunteer efforts of our elected and appointed leaders, through committee work, through Special Interest Group involvement, and through the nomination of innovators and leaders for our many awards.

For those APhA members looking to take the next step in professional engagement with APhA, we hold elections each year for volunteer leadership positions.
