- Flynn Swift (Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane)

Miss Boustead said she is honoured to take on the role of her new appointment.
“It is a privilege to be elected as the 2021/22 President alongside such a highly qualified and capable team of Executive Directors. I am very excited to work with the Board to continue advancing the excellent work that NAPSA does for our members”.
She also thanked outgoing president Ethan Kreutzer.
“It has been an honour to work under the auspices of Ethan throughout the 2020/21 term,” said Miss Boustead.
“Ethan has offered incredible knowledge and insight over the past 12 months and I am grateful for his support as I step into the role of President.”
Immediate past president Ethan Kreutzer congratulated Miss Boustead and the new board on their elected role.
“I am confident that Verity and her newly elected team will be able to achieve great things for NAPSA and I step down knowing that the association is in good hands,” said Mr Kreutzer.
“I had the pleasure of working alongside Verity as Research Chair during my term, so I know first-hand that she is dedicated to anything she takes on, committed to the profession and desires to share her passion for pharmacy with all students.
“I wish Verity and the new board the very best with their upcoming term, I can’t wait to see them grow as a board with a great mix of experience and new ideas.”
Mr Kreutzer also thanked the NAPSA Advisory Council, NAPSA’s sponsors and the pharmacy industry for their continued support.
“Without this support, NAPSA would not have been able to provide ongoing exciting opportunities for pharmacy students,” he said.
