In 1968, ASHP introduced the Executive Residency in Association Management.
The ASHP Executive Residency was a postgraduate training program coordinated through the Executive Office at ASHP headquarters in Bethesda, Maryland. The program was designed to train future association executives to work in and lead state and national associations. The Residency focused on the development of leadership and communication skills, problem solving techniques, and professional growth. Since its creation, graduates of the program have gone on to serve in leadership roles in associations, government, for-profit corporations, academia, philanthropy, pharmacy practice, and various other sectors.
On the 25th Anniversary of the ASHP Executive Residency in Association Management, ASHP paid tribute to three individuals who were instrumental in the creation and success of the program: Dr. Joseph A. Oddis, Dr. Warren E. McConnell, and Dr. Mary Jo Reilly. Between 1968 and 2009, thirty-six residents successfully graduated from the program.
After the 2008-2009 financial crisis, the program was put on hold. During that time, ASHP leadership had worked to reimagine and enhance the program. Among other enhancements, the name changed from the ASHP Executive Residency in Association Management to the ASHP Executive Fellowship in Association Leadership and Management which reflects most programs of this nature and also eliminates any confusion with accredited PGY-1 and PGY-2 residency training.
ASHP Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Paul W. Abramowitz, ASHP Chief Operating Officer and Senior Vice President, Dr. Kasey K. Thompson, and the ASHP Senior Leadership Team worked diligently to bring the program back. In 2017, ASHP selected their inaugural Executive Fellow.
