Are you passionate about our profession? Do you want to get more involved in advocating for pharmacy technicians? Are you looking to build your leadership skills? Consider joining our Board of Directors!

What does the Board do?

The Board of Directors governs the affairs of the Society and supervises, controls, and directs all its activities. The Board actively pursues the mission and goals of the Society and may adopt policies for the conduct of its business. By joining the PTSA Board of Directors you’ll be actively involved in these pursuits.

The Board operates in a “working” capacity on a volunteer basis.  This means that Board members work together to define goals and objectives, and assist with developing ways to achieve results along with the help of committee members.

The Board is comprised of seven to thirteen individuals who will take lead roles in areas of importance to our goals including member services, advocacy, promotion, continuing education, communication and the executive positions of President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer.

All Board positions:

  • Assist with the development of policies
  • Attend all board meetings (monthly to bi-monthly) and report on activities
  • Participate in/lead at least one committee/strategic initiative each term
  • Act as liaison to the board for committees they participate in
  • Represent PTSA at various functions
  • Prepare blog submissions
