GSHP Committee Day

GSHP invites you to serve as a member of one our committees during the 2019 year! 

GSHP's mission is to help our members become better practitioners.  We work towards
fulfilling our mission every year through education of our members via district meetings,
statewide meetings, newsletters, and our website; fostering professional standards; educating
the public about the role of health system pharmacists; monitoring legislative issues that affect
pharmacy; and by promoting health system pharmacy as a career path for future
pharmacists.  The majority of our Society's work is done by member volunteers working
through our committees.  You can play a vital role by serving on one of our committees.  

1.   What will you get out of it? 

An opportunity to make yourself known by networking with other pharmacy leaders across the state and to give back to our profession.  In addition, it provides a venue for you to bring new ideas to the organization. 

2.     What is your commitment? 

It can be as little as giving your input during our upcoming Committee Day on Saturday, January 5, 2019, participating in conference calls, or taking on specific assignments depending on your interests and time.   

GSHP has a variety of committees to meet your interests.  The following is a description of the functions of each committee.  If you are interested in serving on a committee for GSHP, please click on the link below:
