J.B. Hills Chapter President of the Year Nominations Open

Kofi J. Andoh, Vice President

The Chapter President of the Year award was created by the 2011–2012 SNPhA Executive Board and sponsored by the NPhA Foundation to recognize extraordinary leadership amongst its chapters. We would like to spotlight one student pharmacist whose accomplishments for SNPhA and the pharmacy profession have exemplified this year’s 2020-2021 National Presidential theme of “Our Journey Continues".

As an active SNPhA member, you can nominate your Chapter President for this award (if you are not the Chapter President), or you can nominate yourself (if you are the Chapter President).

After nominations, selected Chapter Presidents will be invited to be interviewed by Region Facilitators and the Vice President over the summer. Finalists will be informed and a final winner will be announced at the NPhA/SNPhA National Convention.

DEADLINE: Submit nominations by Monday, May 31st, 2021 at 11:59 PM PDT
