October 10, 2013


Wow – time has flown by these past few months! I know things can be hectic, but I hope you can find a few minutes to catch up on the following important items related to ASCP:

Call for Nominations to ASCP Board of Directors

Yesterday, an email notification was sent out from ASCP with information about the Call for Nominations to the 2014-2015 ASCP Board of Directors. I can speak from personal experience when I say that serving on the Board is both rewarding and fulfilling. The future of the Society depends on the strength of our leadership and the professional insights brought to the table by our elected members. Please nominate yourself or someone you know to the ASCP Board of directors, and help shape the future of ASCP!

National Consultant Pharmacy Week 2013

Next week, from October 15-18, 2013, ASCP and the community will celebrate National Consultant Pharmacy Week 2013. This weeklong observance was started in 1994 as part of October's American Pharmacy Month celebration. This year, we'd like to recognize ALL Consultant and Senior Care Pharmacists around the world. Please mark your calendars and check your email daily next week for updates on #CPweek2013.

2013 ASCP Annual Meeting & Exhibition

Can you believe the Annual Meeting is only 5 weeks away? Please be sure to register if you have not done so already, and book your hotel and travel to Seattle. For your convenience, ASCP has arranged for a block of discounted rooms at the Sheraton Seattle Hotel. As you may know, staying at the ASCP Headquarter Hotel helps ASCP meet hotel obligations and financial goals – it's also right next to the conference center and near all the action downtown! ASCP has also set up a discount airline code with Delta Airlines to help reduce the cost of air travel.

Check Your Membership Expiration Date

It's hard to keep track of dates and deadlines (even with an iPhone!) – especially the dates when memberships to Society's expire. So take a minute to pull out your ASCP membership card, and check the expiration date. If it's coming up, be sure to renew online or by calling 800-355-2727, so you can enjoy uninterrupted benefits and subscription services. Can't locate your card? Login online or give ASCP a call.

Thank you for your time. I hope to see you in Seattle.

Kindest Regards,
