NJPhA Committees

Nobody has to tell you that the pharmacy profession is changing at an ever-increasing rate, and to keep pace, NJPhA has to evolve. But for this to happen, we need input, advice, and guidance from members like you.

Helping your profession. And Yourself.

Participating in an NJPhA committee takes time, but the benefits are many—enhancing leadership skills, steering direction of the Association, networking, early awareness of industry trends, and guiding the actions to address them. On top of this is knowing that your efforts continue to make the Association relevant and meaningful to your colleagues and your profession today and into the future.

To participate in a committee, contact one of the committee chairs below or get in touch with the NJPhA office.
