AMCP Committee Service
The committees of AMCP are the building blocks for the organization and their work is essential to moving AMCP and its strategic plan forward. AMCP has over 250 valued members who dedicate their time and energy to AMCP's committee structure.
HOW ARE COMMITTEE MEMBERS SELECTED?
The call for committee volunteers closed on November 16, 2016. In consultation with the current chairperson, committee member recommendations are made by the incoming chairperson to the President-Elect for approval. Appointments are made in January with the term beginning at the AMCP Managed Care & Specialty Pharmacy Annual Meeting in late March – exceptions are noted. All potential committee members must be an AMCP member in good standing.
