In order for APhA-ASP to complete the IPSF reporting requirements and to qualify APhA-ASP for international awards at World Congress held in late-July/early-August, the Outstanding IPSF Activity Award Report will be due on June 1. Only this section of the APhA-ASP Chapter Achievement Reports is due June 1. All other components of the APhA-ASP Chapter Achievement Reports are due July 15.
During the APhA-ASP National Executive Committee January Business Meeting, the Committee appoints four student pharmacist members to serve as members of the APhA-ASP Awards Standing Committee. Applications for Standing Committee positions are due annually on December 1, and students are notified of their appointment to the APhA-ASP Awards Standing Committee by mid-January. In addition to the four appointed students, the APhA-ASP National President-elect serves as chair of the APhA-ASP Awards Standing Committee.
All five members of the APhA-ASP Awards Standing Committee are sent copies of the reports in mid-August and independently review and rank the Chapter Achievement Award Reports submitted by participating chapters. The Committee then collectively meets in Washington, DC (in mid- to late-November) and selects the award recipients based upon ranking summaries and submitted reports. The Committee at any time may request additional information or clarification from the submitting chapter.
The APhA-ASP Awards Standing Committee and the APhA-ASP National Executive Committee may implement any new or remove any existing awards as they see necessary to recognize innovative and deserving chapters. Award honorariums, certificates, and plaques will be determined by the APhA-ASP Awards Standing Committee, APhA-ASP National Executive Committee, and APhA Student Development Staff.
The decisions of the APhA-ASP Awards Standing Committee are final.
All APhA-ASP CAAs including Chapter of the Year, Division A, AA & AAA Winners and Runners-up, and Specialty awards will be announced and presented at the APhA-ASP Closing Celebration during the APhA Annual Meeting & Exposition.
