Applications for volunteers seeking appointment to APhA-APPM’s standing committees in the areas of Awards, Communications, Education and Policy are due annually in mid-December or as set by the Executive Committee. Committee service is a great way to get involved in the Association and meet new colleagues in your field. Benefits of becoming an Academy volunteer include opportunities to: provide input on programs and products offered by the Association, support the profession by addressing emerging issues, learn about new and innovative research and practice initiatives, and promote the role of the pharmacist in enhancing patient care. Members who hold APhA-APPM as their primary Academy are eligible for consideration and appointment. Previous committee experience is not required. Committee volunteers are asked to serve for one year beginning at the conclusion of the APhA Annual Meeting. Service may include participating in periodic committee meetings and developing projects and/or initiatives of the Academy. Meetings may be conducted by conference call, email communications, video, and/or in-person discussions depending on the committee. A general idea of committee timelines is provided below with the description of each committee’s overall goal/purpose.
