It's Time To Step Up
The Nominations Committee is Calling!

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 lead the organization in “Advancing Excellence in Pharmacy!”  (That’s ICHP’s mission by the way). 

This year is no exception.  With Noelle Chapman completing her term as Immediate Past President and several other offices up for election, there are nine offices that will need two candidates to run for each.  Below is a list of the offices open for election in the Fall of 2020.  All the elected candidates will take office at the 2021 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 their new job and be coached by our current Board Members.  You don’t have to run that race unprepared!  Job descriptions for each office may be found on the ICHP website at:

Offices to be elected this fall:
Director-elect of the Division of Government Affairs
Director-elect of the Division of Organizational Affairs
Director-elect of the Division of Professional Affairs
Central Region Director-elect
Northern Region Director-elect
Southern Region Director-elect
NPN Chair-elect

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, Noelle Chapman at or Scott Meyers at   We hope you are ready to help lead the way for ICHP and Pharmacy!
