With all of the exciting things happening in our pharmacy world this year, it’s more important than ever for you to participate in the APhA Election to select APhA’s leaders.
This slate of candidates includes APhA Board of Trustees and leadership of the APhA Academy of Pharmacy Practice & Management (APhA–APPM) and the APhA Academy of Pharmaceutical Research & Science (APhA–APRS). The APhA Honorary President is also on the ballot.
There are significant enhancements to the process. We have a new timeline that will begin in San Diego on Friday, March 27, 2015. Voting officially opens at 5:00 pm PST. Also on Friday, candidates for the Board of Trustees will be introduced to Annual Meeting attendees at the First Session of the APhA House of Delegates from 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm. Attendees will have the opportunity to interact with the Board of Trustees, APhA–APPM, and APhA–APRS candidates at two “Meet the Candidates” sessions.
You will notice on the ballot that two new practitioners are slated in one Board candidate pairing. This was a direct response by the committee on nominations to comments made during last year’s House of Delegates, when a number of Delegates requested such representation.
Keep your eye out for ballot information in your e-mail inbox. If you prefer a paper ballot, contact our election vendor, Election Services Corporation, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Paper ballots will only be sent upon request.
Online and paper ballots must be received by 12:00 pm EST on Monday, May 25, 2015. The results of the 2015 APhA Election are expected to be released in early July.
