EVERYTHING YOU NEED
FOR A SUCCESSFUL STUDENT CHAPTER
If you're a new student member, we want you to know that our NCPA Student Chapters are where all the action happens. Your chapter is the best place to get plugged in and to start making an impact. If you see something here that your chapter hasn't started yet, ask your advisor or chapter president if you can be the person to get that idea up and running.
If you're a chapter officer, we have a ton of resources available to help you successfully run your chapter. We suggest starting with the Chapter Operations Manual and going from there.
If your school or college of pharmacy doesn't have an NCPA chapter, we can help you start one. Scroll to the bottom of this page for more information.

Chapter Operations Manual
Welcome to your one-stop shop for chapter operations information. This manual was prepared to help you as a chapter officer orient your chapter members to NCPA and its benefits and opportunities. It contains important deadlines for scholarships, awards, and reports, and it can help you identify new programs and initiatives to start at your chapter. This manual is updated annually, so make sure to download this manual regularly.
Midyear/End of the Year Reports
Chapter leadership changes every year, and we need your help to keep our records up-to-date. Each chapter president should submit a Midyear Report in January and an End of the Year Report in June of each school year. The more information you include the more feedback you will receive from the Student Leadership Council on how to improve your chapter and increase your chance to win Chapter of the Year. At a minimum, you must submit your faculty liaison and chapter officer contact information, your fully executed affiliation agreement, your chapter bylaws, and your chapter roster. See the template below for more information.
Practice Transformation Challenge
This award is given to the student chapter that demonstrates excellence throughout the year in promoting pharmacy practice transformation through education in adherence, care planning, and engagement with CPESN-USA on the local, state or national level. Collaboration with ACT Pharmacy Collaborative working with the chapter’s ACT faculty champion is strongly encouraged. Promotion can be done through in-person events, print materials, media forms such as video, photo, radio and tv, and social media. Chapters are evaluated on education, implementation, event outcomes, chapter impact, creativity and collaboration with other health care professions.
Winning chapter receives $750.
