NCPA National Student Leadership Council
Attention all student leaders: Do not miss the opportunity to apply for a national student leadership position in NCPA's National Student Leadership Council (SLC)! The SLC is comprised of 16 student members who each complete a two-year term; the first as a Junior Member and the second as a Senior member. Multiple students from a school or college of pharmacy may apply each year, but only one may be appointed from that school or college. All SLC members must have held an office on the chapter level and all must be current student members of NCPA.
The goal of the SLC is to support the development of future leaders in community pharmacy and to recognize student pharmacists who have a strong interest in entrepreneurship and pursuing a career in community pharmacy. The SLC supports the Director of Student Affairs at NCPA in providing the student pharmacist perspective when developing programs for NCPA student members. Questions? Contact your regional SLC representatives or Student Affairs at email@example.com. Additional information and an application can be found at www.ncpanet.org.
