The Illinois Council of Health-System Pharmacists establishes an Industry Award to recognize that individual from industry who over the years has made unique contributions to Health-System pharmacy in the state. Nominations may be submitted to the ICHP Board of Directors sixty days prior to the Annual Meeting by an affiliate chapter or any two individual members of the ICHP. If a nominee is selected to receive the award, it will be presented at the Annual Meeting. Nominees should meet the following criteria:
The individual has made contributions to the practice of pharmacy in the state of Illinois beyond the scope of duty and responsibility.
The individual has been an effective liaison between Health-System pharmacy practitioners and the manufacturer enabling the manufacturer to respond to new developments in Health-System pharmacy practice.
The individual has encouraged and supported the ICHP over the years by membership, and meeting attendance and participation.
Selection of a recipient shall be by the ICHP Board of Directors in a secret ballot. The successful nominee must receive the support of at least 3/4 of the Council's Board members. Only one ballot shall be taken and all Board members must be polled.
The award is presented during the ICHP Annual Meeting by the Immediate Past President unless another time and presenter are more appropriate.
