I believe the following characteristics are critical to allowing the ASHP Treasurer to be considered a valued member of the ASHP Board of Directors:

  • Detail oriented, organized, and methodical
  • Strong moral compass
  • Transparent with their fellow Board members
  • Committed to fulfilling their responsibilities
  • Strong interpersonal and communication skills
  • Knowledgeable of the ASHP’s governing documents

I believe these characteristics are necessary to educate and guide ASHP Board members to use funds for the betterment of ASHP and its members. The Treasurer should have a vision for how ASHP can improve their long-term financial success to better serve our community in the future.

I believe having strong financial health allows ASHP to provide our members with the necessary tools, resources, and educational activities that enable them to provide preventive care services and optimize and be accountable for the health and medication outcomes of our patients.

I am humbled to have received this nomination and would welcome the opportunity to serve the pharmacy profession as Treasurer of ASHP.
