Call for Nominations
Looking for a few good men! And women! How Would You Like To Run For An ICHP Office?

Feature Article

by Scott A. Meyers, Executive Vice President

Every year, ICHP elects new members to its Board of Directors. As existing officers complete their terms, they often move up to higher offices or move on for a variety of reasons not the least being that they’ve completed the highest offices of President-elect, President and Immediate Past President. So every year, the ICHP Committee on Nominations searches for new leaders to step up to carry on the business of the Council and who are dedicated to “Advancing Excellence in Pharmacy!” That’s ICHP’s mission by the way.

This year is no exception. With Jen Phillips completing her term as Immediate Past President and Carrie Vogler and Colleen Bohnenkamp completing their final terms as Director of Marketing Affairs and Chair of the New Practitioners Network, respectively, there are at least three offices that will need two candidates to run. In addition, Board Members Lara Ellinger and Clara Gary can run for another term for their respective offices and may or may not have yet committed. And even if they do decide to run again, the Committee on Nominations will be seeking a second candidate to fill the ballot completely.

Below is a list of the offices open for election in the fall of 2017. All of the elected candidates will take office at the 2018 Annual Meeting with the exception of the President-elect, who assumes office immediately. So each new leader will have almost a year to train for his/her new jobs and be coached by our current Board Members. You don’t have to run that race unprepared!

If you are interested in running for an office or you would like to know more about an office before committing to run, you may contact the Committee on Nominations Chair, Jen Phillips at or Scott Meyers at We hope you are ready to run for the lead of ICHP and Pharmacy!
