|Who We Are|
WHO WE ARE: Empowering Pharmacists. Transforming Aging.
ASCP is a membership association that represents pharmacists, health care professionals, and students serving the unique medication needs of older adults. ASCP is an international organization with members located in all 50 states, Puerto Rico, and 12 countries. The society’s mission is to promote healthy aging by empowering pharmacists with education, resources, and innovative opportunities.
Founded in 1969, ASCP is a 501(c)(6) non-profit organization based in Alexandria, Virginia. The ASCP Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization; its purpose is to carry out the charitable – including scientific, literary, and educational – purposes of ASCP.
To contact ASCP, please use this form, or call 703-739-1300.
The ASCP Bylaws provide for 13 members on the Board of Directors: 4 officers (president, chairman of the board, president-elect, and secretary-treasurer) and 9 additional directors (1 elected from each of ASCP’s 8 regions listed below, and 1 at-large director). 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 3-year term before running for an officer position. Each director serves a 3-year term and elections are staggered, such that 3 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.
The Council of Presidents consists of all past and present presidential officers of ASCP and serves in an advisory capacity to the Board of Directors and the Society. The Immediate Past Chair of the Board of Directors serves as the Chair of the Council of Presidents.

The Senior Care Pharmacist is a widely read, trusted journal, indexed on Pubmed and Embase and widely cited and downloaded. Published online every month, The Senior Care Pharmacist is official journal of ASCP. The journal is experiencing an exciting growth phase and is now seeking to recruit a small team of Assistant Editors to assist with the work of the journal, supporting the production team, Editor in Chief and Associate Editors. This represents an outstanding opportunity to develop skills and experience in biomedical publishing, guided by an experienced team and achieving international recognition for contributions to the output of a highly respected publication.
Working under supervision, the Assistant Editors will provide assistance in a range of functions:
These are honorary appointments with an initial term of one year, with an option to extend by a further year after the initial period. The appointments will be publicized by ASCP and will be recognized in each edition of the journal.
Expressions of interest are now sought, with the call for appointments closing June 1 2020 and appointments expected shortly after that.
