Monash University student Ethan Kreutzer will serve as president for the 2020/21 term
The National Australian Pharmacy Students’ Association (NAPSA) has announced its new executive for the 2020/21 term, after holding its Annual General Meeting via Zoom over the weekend.
Ethan Kreutzer, who is currently in his fourth year of a Bachelor of Pharmacy (Honours) at Monash University in Melbourne, Victoria, has been elected as president of the student organisation.
He will join the NAPSA Board along with seven newly elected executive directors:
- Joseph Bejjani (University of Sydney, NSW)
- Juliet Contreras (University of Canberra, ACT)
- Samantha King (University of Queensland, Qld)
- Rheanna Norris (University of Queensland, Qld)
- Flynn Swift (Queensland University of Technology, Qld)
- Antoni Ukalović (Curtin University, WA)
- Alex Ward (University of South Australia, SA)
Immediate past president Erin Cooper congratulated Mr Kreutzer and the new board on their elected roles.
“I am confident that Ethan will be able to achieve great things for NAPSA and I step down knowing that the association is in good hands,” said Miss Cooper.
“I had the pleasure of working alongside Ethan as publications chair during my term. I know first-hand that he is committed to the profession and sharing his passion for pharmacy with all students.
“I wish Ethan and the new board the very best with their upcoming term, I can’t wait to see them grow as a board with so many new faces.”
Mr Kreutzer, who has also previously served on the committee of the Victorian Pharmacy Students’ Association, acknowledged the work of his predecessor.
“It has been a pleasure to work with Erin as president over the past 12 months. I have had the privilege of learning a lot from her, and I am very appreciative of her guidance as I step into the role of president,” he said.
“I am very excited about the selection of the 2020/21 NAPSA board. We will have a good mix of familiar and new faces, putting us in good stead to build on the work of the previous board and strive to deliver the best for our members.”
Miss Cooper also thanked the NAPSA Advisory Council, all of NAPSA’s sponsors and the pharmacy industry for their continued support.
“Without this support, NAPSA would not have been able to come this far in providing opportunities for pharmacy students,” she said.
