MPhA Seeks Nominations for Board Member Positions
Friday, December 19, 2014
Serving on the MPhA board of directors is an opportunity to provide leadership and direction to the association as we strive to meet our mission: Serving Minnesota pharmacists to advance patient care. With health reform implementation rapidly underway, it is a very exciting time to be at the table to discuss the changes that are occurring and help chart the course for the profession.
The MPhA Board of Directors consists of fifteen (15) voting positions. Five of these are members of the Executive Committee. The remainder includes two Rural Pharmacist positions, two Metro Pharmacist positions, five At-Large Pharmacist positions, and one Student position. There are also three non-voting ex-officio positions including MPhA Staff, a college of pharmacy representative and a representative from the Minnesota Society of Health Systems Pharmacists. Staggered terms have been established so that each year there are board positions up for re-election. This means the opportunity for fresh new ideas from energetic pharmacists to participate and make a difference!
In 2015, MPhA is seeking nominees/applicants for:
- 1 Metro Board Member Position
- 3 At-Large Board Member Positions
The MPhA board of directors meets on a monthly basis with alternating 3-hour meetings (in person), and 1-hour meetings (via conference call). The incoming MPhA President has discretion to modify the schedule to best meet the needs of the board and the association. Board members are expected to bring issues to the board meetings on behalf of their constituency. Board members play an important role as liaisons to committees and participate in welcoming new pharmacists to the profession.
