Grand Council Goals: I would like to continue the work that I have begun in the pursuit of standardization of processes and procedures. I feel that when our operations are standardized, we can truly move on with the work of member development.
I would also like to continue the work that I have begun in developing a leadership council for all Greek Pharmacy fraternities. We have already held two meetings and begun a Facebook group. We have much in common, and it is important for us to establish unity, professional standards and relevance.
I’m also hopeful to establish long term planning for LKS, especially in the area of meeting planning. Establishing a standard schedule for conventions, including locations and programming, is key to success.
I want to continue to represent LKS as a professional and forward thinking leader.
