The National Pharmacy Association has issued a call for members to nominate a candidate for the forthcoming board of management elections by the deadline of 12pm on Friday 23 February.

Ballot papers will be despatched on Monday 12 March and the poll will run to 12pm on Friday 6 April, the NPA said. A newly elected board will meet for the first time on Monday 23 April.

An NPA spokesman said: “The NPA board sets the policy, strategic direction and objectives for the association. Board members are expected to contribute to debate in sharing ideas and deliver fresh thinking throughout the period of their service. In addition to board meetings, board members also participate in standing committees and/or working groups of the board.

“Overall, the remit is to ensure that the NPA is advancing the interests of community pharmacy owners, to the benefit ultimately of patients and committees.”
