NCPA National Student Leadership Council Deadline—January 31, 2011
Attention all student leaders: This is your last chance to apply for a national student leadership position in NCPA's 2012 National Student Leadership Council (SLC)! The SLC represents all student pharmacist members of NCPA and 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.
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 in developing programs for NCPA student members among other responsibilities.
Questions? Contact your regional SLC representatives or NCPA Student Affairs at studentaffairs.ncpanet.org. Additional information and an application can be found on the NCPA website at www.ncpanet.org.
