KS Board of Pharmacy Vacancies - Independent Pharmacist Nominations Needed

03/08/2017 11:22 AM | Leonard Allen (Administrator)

Currently there are two open Kansas Board of Pharmacy positions. Longtime member and Bowl of Hygeia 2016 recipient, David Schoech from Columbus, KS as well as Jim Garrelts from Wichita, KS will be rotating off of the board on April 30, 2017.

KPhA will submit six names to the Governor's office as nominees by the end of March. Right now independent/owner pharmacists are not represented on the board of pharmacy. The KPhA board of directors wanted to highlight this and make the membership aware. KPhA encourages any member willing to serve on the pharmacy board to let us know, however we are looking for members specifically in the independent community to serve. If you are interested in serving, please let KPhA know by Wednesday, March 15th.

Below are the steps for an individual to apply for appointment candidacy:

  1. Direct submission of the Boards and Commissions Questionnaire (this is an online form)
  2. Direct submission of the Tax Clearance form of the Kansas Department of Revenue (this is an online form)
  3. Submission of Resume and Cover Letter (may be attached to the Boards and Commissions Questionnaire)
The following are the state's requirements for membership on the Kansas Board of Pharmacy. Candidates must:
  • Be a resident of Kansas;
  • Be a licensed pharmacist; and
  • Be actively employed in or engaged in the practice of pharmacy in Kansas for at least five years immediately preceding the date of appointment.

Nominees must be willing to serve a fouryear term beginning May 1, 2017.

If you would like to be one of KPhA nominees please email the following documents to aaron@ksrx.org by close of business Wednesday, March 15, 2017:

  • The nominee's current curriculum vitae or resume
  • Three letters of support
