This past year Kim Fehr and Regan Tattersall completed terms on the board. As President, Past President and Treasurer, Kim made significant contributions to the Society as a member of the Executive for her six year tenure. According the bylaws, board members may only serve a maximum of six consecutive years. Regan also fulfilled the role of Treasurer and spent time refining the organizations financial policies and contributing new ideas to the board.
Nicholas Burns and Rhonda Bodnarchuk have returned to the PTSA communications committee with new titles. The title changes were made to better align Nick’s and Rhonda’s roles with new committee terms of reference. Nick is serving as the Communications Committee Chairperson and Rhonda as the Communications Advisor.
There were also a number of new members who expressed interest in volunteering their time to help our organization succeed. Over the next several months, committee membership will be finalized. There are still many volunteer opportunities available if you’re interested in helping PTSA be successful in advocating for the profession, educating on the pharmacy technician’s scope of practice and inspiring professional development.
