As you know, OPA has created a new group primarily for recently graduated practitioners called the New Practitioner eXperience (NPX). This group is designed to help with the transition from student to pharmacist. We have already had a successful first three years, and are now looking to expand and continue our growth.
As NPX continues to grow, we are looking for interested individuals to take an active leadership role on the NPX Advisory Team. There are two open positions, Vice-Chair and Member-at-Large.
Applicants for both positions must have graduated within the last seven years. Expectations include participation in monthly calls and contributing to NPX efforts. Attendance at the OPA Annual Conference is strongly encouraged.
Interested individuals should submit a 1-page letter of interest to Lisa Berman at firstname.lastname@example.org by April 5, 2017 outlining your professional experiences to date, why you are interested in the position and what you will bring to the team. Please specify in the letter which position(s) you are interested in. Want to learn more about the group, time commitment and roles/responsibilities of the positions? Please contact Alexa Sevin, current Chair, at email@example.com or Lisa Berman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
NPX is recruiting new liaisons for the 2017-2018 committee year! NPX liaison responsibilities include:
1. Be present at your committee meeting and represent/share the new practitioner perspective
2. After your committee meeting, send a 2-3 sentence meeting recap to be published in the NPX quarterly newsletter
3. Participate in other NPX activities by attending events and encouraging other new practitioners to join OPA NPX activities
The complete OPA Committee listing can be found here. If you are interested in serving on one of the OPA committees as an NPX liaison, please email NPX Chair Alexa Sevin at email@example.com and Lisa Berman at firstname.lastname@example.org with which committee(s) you’d be interested in serving on.
