A. Membership Categories & Composition
The members of an Affiliate must be members of AMCP. Per the Affiliation Agreement, the Affiliate’s membership must be composed of at least 51% pharmacists. The categories of membership are Active (pharmacists, physicians and nurses), Associate (all other non-students), Residents/Fellows/Graduate Students (RFG - full time status) and Student Pharmacist.
B. Dues/Indication of Affiliate Membership
How does AMCP determine Affiliate membership?
Affiliate membership is tagged in the individual’s AMCP membership record when dues payment is received based on the affiliate region where they live or work, or when the member expresses an interest in an Affiliate and notifies AMCP or when a member notifies an Affiliate officer who then notifies AMCP.
Can the Affiliate charge separate dues?
Affiliates do not charge separate dues.
How to do we get a roster of Affiliate members?
Rosters for your Affiliate are available upon request from Affiliate officers only. Rosters will be provided no more than once per month. Requests should be addressed to Susan Noell at firstname.lastname@example.org. Rosters cannot be used to send out affiliate wide emails (that is done through AMCP) or for any use outside of affiliate business.
Can we get a roster of AMCP members in the state/region?
Yes! Upon request, AMCP will provide a roster of AMCP members (Active, Associate, RFG, Student Pharmacist) in the Affiliate’s state or neighboring states no more than two times per year. This roster may be used to recruit AMCP members to join the Affiliate or invite AMCP members to an Affiliate’s event. Requests should be addressed to Susan Noell at email@example.com. It should not be shared beyond the officers or used for anything else besides affiliate business.
Note: If AMCP sends the invitation or e-mail communication for the Affiliate, you do not need to request a roster.
Are there restriction to the use and distribution of rosters?
Yes! The Affiliate rosters are proprietary information of the Academy and individual member information must be treated as confidential. The Affiliate may only use the address, phone and email address for its business purposes as stated in the paragraph above.
D. Communication with Members
Does the Affiliate have a website?
Yes! AMCP maintains a page on its website for each Affiliate. Staff will administer the page and revise content according to the request of the Affiliate. For links to the individual Affiliate’s pages, see Affiliate-specific under Section II of this e-Manual.
Can the Affiliate use the AMCP logo when communicating with its members?
No! AMCP Affiliates are required to use the logo developed specifically for the Affiliate. This logo incorporates the AMCP logo with the Affiliate name. When using the AMCP Affiliate-specific logo, Affiliates are required to follow the posted guidelines. Links to the individual Affiliate logo jpg files can be found under the Affiliate’s area of Section II in this e-Manual.
Can the Affiliate publish a newsletter?
AMCP Affiliates may publish a newsletter that is written and designed by the Affiliate members. AMCP staff can send the completed newsletter via broadcast email on behalf of the Affiliate.
Can the Affiliate have an email address?
Yes! Each Affiliate should have its own email address. It is recommended that the Affiliates use a Google email (gmail) account. The email should be the name of the Affiliate (such as firstname.lastname@example.org). A password should be selected that can be easily remembered and given and passed on to the officers (or whomever the Affiliate determines should have access). This address will be used in all Affiliate communications for items such as “for more information” or “RSVPs”. It is recommended that affiliates provide AMCP headquarters with their email login and password as backup.
