SPPA/ Student Leadership

Student - Pennsylvania Pharmacists Association (SPPA)

All student members are automatically members of the SPPA.

 

Student Advisory Board

The Student Advisory Board (SAB) is compromised of a Student Director East one student from either Temple University, the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy, Wilkes University, and Jefferson and a student Director West - one student from either the University of Pittsburgh, Ohio Northern University, Duquesne University and LECOM.  The SAB is also made up of a Foundation Director, Chair, Vice Chair, Corresponding Secretary and Recording Secretary.  These elected individuals will serve a full year term. Each of the eight schools of pharmacy also has both a Director and an Alternate. The Student Advisory Board regularly holds brief business meetings at each of PPA’s two conferences and provides students with a manner in which to have a voice in PPA policy and activities.

 

Each school also has a Communication, Government Relations, and Membership Ambassador that aids with promoting these areas for their PPA chapter.  These individuals do not serve on the Student Advisory Board.
