Governance and Leadership

The APhA Board of Trustees is responsible for broad direction setting of the Association and development of APhA’s Vision and Mission statements and the Strategic Plan.

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:
