The PSA is offering an opportunity for an early career pharmacist to become a National Board Director to help shape the future of the profession.

Following a resolution passed at PSA’s National Board Meeting in March, the recruitment and appointment of an ECP PSA Director is now underway.

The PSA Board has made a strategic decision for the future needs of the profession, which includes having a stronger focus on Early Career Pharmacists in Australia.

PSA National President Joe Demarte says having an ECP on the National Board is an important commitment for the organisation.

“PSA proudly represent all pharmacists in Australia as we passionately believe in and are committed to the future of this important profession,” Demarte says.

“That’s why I’m delighted to announce that PSA is seeking the contribution of an Early Career Pharmacist to its governance structure through the recruitment of an additional Board-appointed Director.

“The majority of the profession, and PSA’s membership, are Early Career Pharmacists so it makes sense to have at least one Director who fits this profile to help shape the future strategic direction of PSA.”

Demarte says the term of the ECP PSA Director will be 12 months, and once an ECP Director is appointed, the person will also be appointed Chair of the National ECP Working Group.

“This is an excellent opportunity to make a commitment to your profession and we strongly encourage all eligible PSA members to apply for the position of ECP PSA Director,” Demarte says.

To be eligible for this Director’s position, pharmacists must be a PSA member and:

  • Be a registered pharmacist, with no more than 10 years of pharmacy practice experience post registration.
  • Have experience and knowledge of relevant issues facing Early Career Pharmacists.

Candidates are required to submit their applications to the PSA Returning Officer PSA CEO Dr Lance Emerson by 5pm May 29, 2016.
