MPhA Board of Directors
Board of Directors

The MPhA Board of Directors (BOD) is comprised of elected officers and representatives who represent all pharmacy practice settings and geographic regions in Minnesota. The Board of Directors is composed of the following members: President, Immediate Past President, President-Elect, Secretary-Treasurer, the Speaker and Vice Speaker of the House, two rural and two metro directors elected from nominees put forward by the districts, five directors at-large elected from nominees put forward by the academies, a pharmacy technician ex-officio representative and ex-officio representatives of associate organizations. MPhA’s Board of Directors can recognize associate organizations who are comprised of pharmacists or student pharmacists that are independent of MPhA, but share common interests, members, and need for inter-organizational communication and coordination. Associate organizations are granted one seat on the MPhA Board of Directors ex officio without vote which they may choose to exercise. The Minnesota Chapter of the American Society of Consultant Pharmacists (MN-ASCP), the Minnesota College of Clinical Pharmacists (MCCP) and the Minnesota Society of Health-System Pharmacists (MSHP) and the University of Minnesota College of Pharmacy are associate organizations.


The recognized University of Minnesota student pharmacist association shall select one representative from each campus to serve on the Board of Directors. They further select which of the two representatives will serve as primary Board member with vote. The second student pharmacist Board member will serve on the Board without vote unless the primary student Board member is not present at a meeting of the Board, in which case the sole attending student Board member will be granted voting privileges.

The board meets monthly, and is responsible for reviewing and revising the MPhA strategic plan and incorporating resolutions passed by the MPhA House of Delegates.

Elections for open board positions occur yearly, with a swearing in ceremony at the beginning of each MPhA House of Delegates Meeting. If you are interested in running for a board position, please contact Jacquie Durant at the MPhA office.
