Schiller has been active with ASHP at the state and national levels. He recently served as chair of the Section of Pharmacy Practice Leaders (SPPL) Advisory Group (SAG) on Strategy and Industry Disrupters, a member of the ASHP Council on Therapeutics, member of the New Practitioners Forum Executive (NPF) Committee, chair of the NPF Advisory Group on Leadership and Career Development, a member of the Pharmacy Student Forum Executive Committee and chair of the Technology and Publications subcommittee.  He has also served in multiple roles with the New Jersey and New York state affiliates, including president of the New Jersey Society of Health-System Pharmacists (NJSHP), director of Industry Relations for the New York State Council of Health-System Pharmacists (NYSCHP), and president of his local NYSCHP chapter. 

I truly believe I am where I am today because of my involvement in professional organizations such as ASHP. This helped mold my vision and philosophy on what pharmacists can and should do to improve patient care. Participating in various ASHP committees, councils, and meetings, especially early in my career, introduced me to various leaders from across the country who inspired me. I would try to incorporate highlights from their clinical and leadership practices into mine and was motivated to push for new opportunities for my coworkers, my staff, and for myself. As I took on new roles during my career and eventually moved into administrative positions, I saw different aspects of the healthcare system, the challenges that we face, and the importance of advocating for our profession. I believe it is my responsibility to provide guidance, inspiration, and mentorship to others the way it was provided to me; helping others become more competent in their practice has been an important part of my career.

I am grateful for the opportunities that I have had with ASHP and proud of the contributions I have made to the organization and to pharmacy practice. ASHP has introduced me to some amazing people, many of which I have “grown up with” as we progressed through various stages of our careers. It is exciting to see what my mentors, friends, and colleagues have accomplished, and it is truly humbling and an honor to be nominated for the chair of the Section of Pharmacy Practice Leaders.
