Councils and Committees

ASHP maintains the following committees to assist in its many activities.

Councils

The five councils are the primary bodies that initiate ASHP policies on professional issues. Policy recommendations are reviewed by the Board of Directors and, ultimately, by the House of Delegates. Councils also advise the Board on ASHP activities within their respective purviews.

How to Apply

Recommendations for appointments to ASHP committees are not currently being accepted. The Call for Recommendations for the 2020-2021 term will open in the first week of September 2019.

The ASHP President-elect, with the approval of the Board of Directors, appoints members of ASHP Committees. ASHP members are encouraged to recommend themselves or other members for appointment.

In making recommendations for appointments, the President-elect takes into consideration geographic distribution, personal qualifications, and previous experience in ASHP and affiliated state societies. ASHP is especially interested in having recommendations that help ensure sufficient diversity in appointments. ASHP is also interested in identifying new practitioners, residents, and students who are well equipped to serve ASHP through engagement on a committee.

Members may recommend more than one individual for any particular committee. The number of recommendations usually far exceeds the number of appointments. Members who have previously been appointed and who would like to continue serving must also submit recommendation materials.

ASHP members must complete the online Appointment Recommendation Submission Form to recommend themselves or someone else for appointment. The form allows members to provide comments on the candidate’s (1) qualifications, (2) experience, (3) areas of special expertise, (4) previous involvement with ASHP or state affiliates, and (5) any special characteristics that will help ASHP achieve a balance of perspectives and diversity. Note that the candidate’s curriculum vitae must be attached to the form when it is submitted.

If you have any questions, please contact the ASHP Executive Office.
