House of Delegates

The House of Delegates serves as the Association’s policy-setting body. These policies, which are established by delegates who serve in the House of Delegates, guide CPhA in discussions with the legislature, Board of Pharmacy, Department of Health Care Services and any other government agencies. Involvement in this aspect of the Association’s business provides members with an opportunity to have their voice heard and ensures that CPhA policy accurately reflects the collective view of California pharmacists.

Policy Committees – Making Recommendations to the House

Another way to participate in the policy-setting process of CPhA is to volunteer for one of the Policy Committees. Policy Committees review existing policies and making recommendations to the House of Delegates on whether the policy is still valid, needs to be amended, or can remain as is as well as analyze new policies that are submitted from members throughout the year. Please complete and submit this form here.

Submitting New Business Proposals and Policy Ideas

Perhaps the single most accessible way in which a member can get involved with the policy-setting process of the Association is by submitting your ideas to the Policy Committees. This is your chance to influence practice in the pharmacy profession. Members have boldly affected change utilizing this process.

In order for a policy idea to be accepted, it must be submitted to a Policy Committee, or to the House of Delegates prior to the opening session at the annual meeting, Western Pharmacy Exchange. Members who propose new policies should also be prepared to present their item at Reference Committee hearings, which are also held during the annual meeting.
