The ASHP policy development process allows professional policies to originate in three ways:
- from ASHP councils, which meet in July, September and February;
- from executive committees of sections and forums;
- and directly from ASHP members via Resolutions.
ASHP’s Resolution process offers a mechanism for ASHP members to have input into the House of Delegates. Resolutions require sponsorship by two active members, who need not be delegates. All Resolutions must be submitted 90 days in advance of the House session, which is June 9, 2019. Resolutions must be submitted via the online Resolutions Submission Form.
Before submitting a Resolution, members are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the Guidelines for Submitting Resolutions and existing ASHP policy on the proposed topic. New policy recommendations that resulted from September’s ASHP Policy Week and are currently under Board consideration are available on the ASHP Connect House of Delegates Community site.
We appreciate your interest and participation in the policymaking process of ASHP. If you have any questions about the process for submitting a Resolution, you are encouraged to contact the Chair of the House of Delegates.
