Julie Dopheide, PharmD, BCPP—Nominating Committee Chair
Thanks to the contributions of time and talent, members have helped CPNP to make great strides in its short 17 years of existence. CPNP is truly a membership-driven organization. This is especially true in selecting future leaders of the organization. Another of the many ways you can contribute is to nominate your peers and colleagues for one of 3 positions on CPNP’s Board of directors (President-Elect, Treasurer and Member-At-Large). On or before Friday, September 19, consider nominating one or more individuals who have the dedication and time to contribute to CPNP’s success; it may even be you! You can log in to learn more about the requirements for each position. As the immediate past-president of the Board, I can attest to the value of this experience in providing the opportunity for tremendous personal and professional growth.
Once an individual has been nominated, they will be asked to complete a form detailing their current position, professional experience, prior CPNP volunteer work, other professional activities they are involved in, and board positions he/she is willing to serve in. This information is then shared with the Nominating Committee consisting of me as Immediate Past President and Chair, Past Presidents Rex Lott and Jerry McKee, and at-large members Nancy Brahm and Jose Rey. This information is merged with a historical profile of CPNP involvement all of which assists the nominating committee in evaluating the skill sets and leadership experience of those nominated as they consider the needs of the Board. The final slate of six nominees (2 for each position) will be based on the future skill sets and leadership needs of the board matched with the qualifications of those nominated as detailed on their nomination profiles. This slate will be offered to the membership for voting in late October through mid-November.
Each and every one of us can make our contributions to CPNP and this is one of the significant ways you can make a difference to an organization so important to our profession.
