Advocate of the Year Award
The AMCP Advocate of the Year Award recognizes an individual responsible for significant advocacy promoting AMCP’s legislative and regulatory priorities. (Formerly the Grassroots Advocacy Award.)
The nominee must be an individual responsible for a significant activity around a legislative and/or regulatory issue. Examples include, but are not limited to, an AMCP member whose personal efforts were critical to passing AMCP-favored legislation or preventing legislation that would be detrimental to managed care pharmacists; an AMCP member who took initiative to establish an effective grassroots coalition in their state; or an AMCP member who provided leadership and creativity in developing and/or advancing AMCP’s public policy positions.
Nominations are submitted by AMCP members. Each nomination must include a nomination form and maximum 500-word statement that describes the contribution deemed worthy of recognition. If no nominations are received, AMCP Policy & Government Relations staff may nominate AMCP members who satisfy the above criteria.
The recipient is selected by the AMCP Advocate of the Year Award Selection Committee composed of AMCP Policy & Government Relations staff and the Chair and Vice Chair of the AMCP Legislative and Regulatory Action Committee and the AMCP Public Policy Committee. See also AMCP’s Awards Policy (Section 8.1 Awards Policy) for more information on the process for appointing award selection committees.
NATURE OF AWARD:
The AMCP Advocate of the Year Award is presented annually at the AMCP spring meeting. The recipient receives an AMCP logo statuette, a complimentary registration, and travel reimbursement (up to $1,000) to the AMCP spring meeting.
