Who We Are

WHO WE ARE

ASCP is a non-profit, membership association devoted to optimal medication management and improved health outcomes for all older adults. Founded in 1969, ASCP is an international organization based in Alexandria, Virginia.

ASCP represents pharmacy professionals and students serving the unique medication needs of older adults. ASCP's members range in the services they provide and serve older adults in a variety of settings.

The ASCP Foundation is dedicated to educating older adults and caregivers about principles and practices associated with safe and appropriate use of medicines. The ASCP Foundation's unique focus is the development, integration, and application of knowledge regarding medication use in the older adult population and the practice of senior care pharmacy to optimize health outcomes.

The ASCP Bylaws provide for 14 members on the Board of Directors: 4 officers (president, chairman of the board, president-elect, and secretary-treasurer) and 10 additional directors (1 elected from each of ASCP’s 8 regions listed below, and 2 at-large directors). In addition, the Executive Director/CEO serves as an ex officio, non-voting member of the Board. Each officer serves a one-year term. Each officer must have been a director-member of the Board for a minimum of one 2-year term before running for an officer position. Each director serves a 2-year term and elections are staggered, such that only 5 of the 10 director positions are elected annually. Each director may be re-elected to no more than two consecutive terms as director. Directors are strongly encouraged to run for an officer position, since being a director is a prerequisite for being an officer.
