The Role of IPA Leadership in the future of Pharmacy
IPA provides vision and a collective voice for Indiana pharmacy professionals. We build consensus for members working across the continuum of health care, including retail pharmacies, health systems, managed care and senior care facilities. All of IPA's meetings, programs, and policies are a result of the IPA leadership which includes the IPA Board of Directors, IPA councils and task forces. IPA encourages members to get involved by serving on the board, a council or a task force. Most council and task force meetings are conducted via conference calls hosted by IPA. Board meetings are held at the IPA office in Indianapolis or as part of the Annual Convention or Spring CE Conference. Click on the links on the left to see the members of the board and specific councils and task forces. Feel free to contact these individuals to see how you can get involved!
