House of Delegates

What is the ASHP House of Delegates?

The ASHP House of Delegates is the "ultimate authority on ASHP professional policies." Those elected as a delegate represent the interests of health-system pharmacy in their state.

ASHP grants three delegates to the state of Utah, who each serve a two calendar year term. USHP is responsible for holding elections for these delegates. Our delegates are staggered such that there is at least one delegate with a year of experience (e.g. two delegates alternating with one delegate are elected every other year).

    • Note: Preferred practice for 5 or more years
