This year, ASCP sought volunteers for the following committees and councils:

  • Professional Affairs: This committee, which consists of several subcommittees are created to be "Advisory Boards" to ASCP and its members.

    • Antibiotic and Infection Control Stewardship Committee
    • Opioid Stewardship Workgroup
    • Medication Safety & Transitions in Care Workgroup
    • Health IT Workgroup
    • Senior Care Pharmacist Workgroup
  • Policy & Advocacy

This committee is instrumental in being the "eyes and ears" on the state and national level to keep all members apprised of political issues.
    • DEA Task Force: The DEA Task Force is charged with monitoring proposed changes in DEA regulations that affect senior care pharmacy practice. The task force will develop strategies to work with the DEA and other stakeholder groups to ensure ASCP's voice is heard and considered by the DEA. The task force will make suggestions to the Board of Directors for policy statements as needed.
    • Political Action Committee (PAC): This committee identifies fundraising efforts and provides oversight of the distribution of PAC funds to insure consistency with ASCP’s legislative goals.
    • ASCP Policy Committee

    • Independent Consultant Pharmacist Operators: This group represents pharmacists engaged in independent consulting pharmacist operations in a senior care environment and advise on educational and regulatory topics pertinent to membership.
    • Home and Community Based Consultant Pharmacists: The members of this group practice in a private senior care pharmacist role and serve as a “community health ambassador group” to interact with other organizations serving pharmacists in the community.
    • Pharmaceutical Company Advisory Group: This group is comprised of national and regional account managers from pharmaceutical companies with interests in senior care and serves as advisors to the ASCP meetings, membership and ASCP Foundation.
    • New Practitioners: This is a new special interest group this year with the intent of engaging and mentoring pharmacists new to senior care consulting. In addition to new practitioners, this group will be composed of members of the Council of Presidents.
    • Women’s Leadership Group: This is a new interest group introduced with the intent of fostering women in pharmacy to achieve leadership positions in business and/or organizations with the goal of business ownership.
    • Long Term Care Pharmacy Operators: This group represents pharmacists engaged in operations in a senior care environment and serves as an advisory group to ASCP in educational and meeting planning initiatives.
    • Nursing Home Executives: This group consists of members practicing in a nursing home executive role and represents the society with a focus on ensuring that the relationship, engagement, and offerings to these stakeholders is continually improved.

    It is important to note that newly appointed committee members are strongly encouraged to attend the Annual Meeting in National Harbor, MD November 1-4th to meet in-person with their assigned committee. In addition to this responsibility, it is estimated committee members will be asked to participate in at least quarterly meetings via videoconferencing (some meet monthly), and actively participate in email and listserv activities.
