The New Practitioners Council was formed in 2015. The purpose of the task force is to build and sustain a framework for newly practicing pharmacist members of IPA. The group promotes involvement through specially designed events and opportunities targeted toward the needs of pharmacists in the beginning of their careers. In addition to catering to the needs of New Practitioners, the council collaborates with the various IPA leadership boards and councils to help with the overarching mission of the organization and creates a pipeline for future leadership within the organization.
