2. If you are a student or trainee, please indicate your current status below. (If you are not a student or trainee, please skip this question). As of July 1, 2013, I will be a:
3. Awards Committee: One main function of this committee is to solicit ASCP members for nominations for ASCP awards, review nominees’ credentials and qualifications for the award nominees and recommend to the Board of Directors the names of nominee finalists of qualified individuals for each ASCP award available. The committee will meet at the Annual Meeting and conduct much of its work through conference calls and list servers.
4. Member Engagement Task Force: This is a new group to help develop mechanisms that allow members to provide suggestions for strategic planning, input on membership needs, or input for the Board of Directors to consider for decision making. In an effort to make ASCP a more member-driven organization, the purpose of this task force is to brain-storm to identify possible ways to allow members to provide ideas for the Board of Directors to consider, particularly for time-sensitive issues. The work of this task force will begin at the Annual Meeting and will continue via conference calls and email.
5. Practice Expansion and Entrepreneurial Task Force: Over many years, councils and task forces have created numerous practice resources and products for members to use to help them expand their practices in areas within and outside of long-term care facilities. This task force is created to look at the existing products and resources and determine how these may be used to create educational programs that help members use these tools and expand their practices. In addition the task force will exam potential new practice opportunities for ASCP members and suggest practice resources and products that will facilitate members expanding practice in evolving health care delivery models.
6. Political Action Committee: A standing leadership group that convenes at the Annual Meeting and Spring Conference. Board of Trustees of the PAC, as designated by the Committee’s bylaws is: 6 ASCP members nominated by the ASCP President and confirmed by the ASCP BOD. List server and conference calls are also expected for this group’s deliberations. This committee is empowered to solicit, directly or indirectly, and accept, voluntary personal contributions, and to make expenditures in connection with the attempt to influence the selection, nomination, or election of any individual to any Federal office.
7. Advocacy Council: A standing leadership group that meets in person at the annual and spring meetings. This council is charged with advising the ASCP Board of Directors on policy and advocacy issues facing the Society’s members. List server and conference calls are also expected for this group’s deliberations. At least one member of the Advocacy Council will be appointed from each of the five ASCP regions.
8. CMS Provider Status Task Force: The Provider Status Task Force will work collaboratively with ASCP’s Professional, Clinical, and Government Affairs staff in formulating plans and policy statements regarding the need for pharmacists to be recognized by the Federal government as health care providers. This committee will spearhead ASCP’s efforts towards this goal and will meet at the Annual Meeting and via conference calls and list servers.
9. DEA Task Force: The DEA Task Force is charged with monitoring proposed changes in DEA regulations that affect long-term 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.
10. Education Advisory Council: A standing leadership group that meets live quarterly (including the Annual Meeting and Spring Conference). List server dialogues and conference calls are also expected for this group’s deliberations. The members of this group are responsible for developing the educational offerings for all ASCP national meetings. The EAC will draft programmatic themes, session descriptions, learning objectives, and identify potential speakers. The EAC works collaboratively with the ASCP Educational Affairs Department staff.
11. Pharmacy Educators Council: This council is a forum for networking among pharmacy educators. Volunteers are needed to serve as council leadership; however, membership on this council is open to all ASCP members. Specific charges to this council include: Develop a network of faculty and preceptors (i.e. residency and students) practicing and teaching students with respect to geriatrics and gerontology; create an online portal that contains resources such as syllabi and experiential learning tools to assist with course development or precepting; and sustain and expand networking opportunities online as well as live forums for academicians and preceptors.
12. Pharmacy Researcher Council: This council is a forum for networking among pharmacy researchers. Volunteers are needed to serve as council leadership; however, membership on this council is open to all ASCP members. Specific charges to this council include: Develop a network of individuals with pharmacy research interests, skills, capacity and training; plan an ASCP research summit to outline a strategic research plan that supports the society’s mission; partner with PGY2 Geriatric Pharmacy Residency Program Directors to establish a research agenda that incorporates residents on an annual basis; and partner with the ASCP and AFPE Foundations in seeking grants that support the strategic research plan.
13. Education Standards Task Force: The Education Standards Task Force is convened to specifically address the upcoming revisions to CAPE and ACPE standards. The goal of this task force is to work with stakeholder groups to achieve mandatory requirements and standards for geriatric pharmacy education. The task force will provide comments to AACP’s Center for the Advancement of Pharmacy Education (CAPE) and to ACPE during the open comment period for revised accreditation standards.
