    Hello colleagues,

    The call for AACP committee volunteers is now open! This includes service on the PharmCAS Advisory Committee beginning in July for the 2019-2020 term. Please review the information below to learn about the committee charges, time commitment, and eligibility requirements. Volunteering to serve does not guarantee a spot on the committee. Notifications for 2019-2020 committees will be sent to all nominees by mid-June.

    How to Volunteer: AACP will send a call for committee volunteers to all AACP members in February/March of each year from mail@aacp.org. The call for volunteers closes in early April. Volunteering to serve does not guarantee a position on the committee.

    Charges: The PharmCAS Advisory Committee should counsel the Association and Liaison International on the development and promotion of the Pharmacy College Application Service. The Committee will assist with the following objectives:

    • Ensure the centralized application service is designed to meet the needs of academic pharmacy and prospective student pharmacists;
    • Ensure the centralized application service is operationally and fiscally sound;
    • Promote PharmCAS to AACP member institutions, prospective applicants, health professions advisors, and other related organizations; and
    • Evaluate system performance and recommendations for enhancements.


    Meetings
    : The committee's work will be conducted through email, online, and monthly conference calls on the second Tuesday of every month at 1:30 pm ET. The committee has one in-person meeting during the Admissions Workshop at the AACP Annual Meeting. Additional on-site meetings are not scheduled at this time, but may be added, if necessary. Individuals who are unable to participate in most meetings should not submit their names for consideration.

    Terms: According to Article XII of the Association Bylaws, committee members shall be appointed for a minimum of one year with the option of being invited to serve for up to two additional terms for a total of three terms and shall be active individual members of the Association. Therefore, if you are not an individual member of AACP, you must join prior to volunteering to serve on the committee. Please contact Latoya Casteel at mail@aacp.org to create or renew your membership. The PharmCAS Advisory Committee term is from July to July, both starting and ending at the in-person meeting at the annual AACP Admissions Workshop preceding the Annual Meeting. AACP does not pay for travel to the workshop or waive the workshop registration fee. This location was selected as the majority of committee members plan to be onsite.

    Stakeholders: The stakeholders represented on the advisory committee are outlined in the table below. There will be at least two vacancies to fill for 2019-2020. The list of stakeholders may change in the future based on the needs of PharmCAS at that time.

    PharmCAS Terms of Service Table





















    Eligibility
    : All PharmCAS Advisory Committee volunteers must represent a Pharm.D. program that participates in PharmCAS and must understand or participate in the local admissions process for the pharmacy program. Volunteers must be individual members of AACP. No more than one representative from an institution can serve at the same time. Committee members who rotate off are welcome to volunteer to serve on the committee again in response to the next call for AACP committee volunteers. Preference may be given to those who have not previously served on the committee.

    Selection Process:  AACP strives to identify a diverse and balanced committee relative to geographic location, institution type, demographics, and expertise. The following factors will be considered in the selection process:

    • Geographic Region
    • Type of Institution: Public versus Private
    • Size of Program
    • Admissions and CAS Expertise
    • Gender
    • Race and Ethnicity

    If you have any questions, please let me know.

    Thanks,
    Katie

    Hi Katie,

    I assumed the University's membership would suffice.

     

    I cc'd the membership department on the initial email I will await their response.
