Pharmacy’s Future starts here

The House of Delegates is the policy‑making body of the APhA Academy of Student Pharmacists (APhA-ASP), an official Academy of the American Pharmacists Association. With representation at every school and college of pharmacy, APhA‑ASP is the collective voice of student pharmacists in the United States and Puerto Rico. The House is comprised of one delegate from each school or college of pharmacy, four APhA-ASP National Executive Committee members, and observers from student pharmacist and other health professional organizations.

APhA-ASP House of Delegates Agenda and Amendment Form

APhA-ASP Adopted Resolutions (Policy Book) and "The Capsule"

APhA-ASP Adopted Resolutions begin as ideas brought forth from individual members to their chapter. After much discussion on the chapter, regional, and national levels, the most prominent ideas are brought to the APhA-ASP House of Delegates during the APhA Annual Meeting each spring. Once passed by the House, those ideas become resolutions representing the collective voice of student pharmacists. Those resolutions are then addressed by the APhA-ASP Policy Standing Committee and APhA-ASP National Executive Committee for further action.

APhA-ASP MRM Closing Business Session Reports

While reviewing each of the proposed resolutions passed at the APhA-ASP Midyear Regional Meetings, the APhA-ASP Resolutions Committee develops a ranked list of policy proposals. After 3 rounds of discussion, the Committee develops a consensus on the top issues and develops their report of proposed resolutions that will be brought before the APhA-ASP House of Delegates at the APhA Annual Meeting & Exposition. Appendix A of the APhA-ASP Resolutions Committee Report provides a reason code as well as a percentage of where all of the proposed resolutions ranked within the Committee's deliberations.

APhA-ASP National Officer Elections

Serving as an American Pharmacists Association Academy of Student Pharmacists (APhA-ASP) National Officer is rewarding, both professionally and personally. Elected officers who choose to serve their profession have the personal satisfaction of knowing that they have been elected by their colleagues to represent them in their national professional organization. At times, serving as an elected officer may be a very difficult and demanding position, but the position is meant to complement, not compete with educational responsibilities. An elected officer's education always takes the higher priority.

The Regulations and Procedures for APhA-ASP National Officer elections serve as the official guidelines for the APhA-ASP House of Delegates Rules of Procedures, APhA-ASP Nominations Committee, APhA-ASP House of Delegates, and those candidates wishing to seek national office. The regulations and procedures are reviewed annually by the APhA-ASP National Executive Committee and may be revised as necessary.

2022-2023 APhA-ASP National Officer elections will be conducted during the APhA2022 Annual Meeting in San Antonio, TX, March 18-21. Information about the candidates will be posted March 1, 2022. Candidates will be notified as soon as possible in the event of changes to the elections or responsibilities of national office.
