APA Student Opportunities

The Arkansas Pharmacists Association (APA) welcomes student involvement in all of our association activities.  The APA holds multiple activites each year for student pharmacists.  These events include:

  • Arkansas Pharmacy Foundation Annual Golf Tournament (April)
    Each year, the APF holds an annual golf tournament to raise money for student scholarships.  The golf tournament is a great opportunity for students to network with pharmacists and to enjoy the day on the golf course.
  • Graduation Celebration (May)
    To celebrate student pharmacists' completion of their pharmacy degree and to welcome them as pharmacist members of the profession, the APA offers a treat for graduating seniors.  During the event, students receive a commemorative APA membership certificate that is suitable for framing and they receive a six-month complimentary membership to the APA.
  • Annual Convention (June)
    The APA Annual Convention is held in June every year and pharmacists from across the state attend for the great CE, social gatherings, and networking opportunities.  Student pharmacists are able to attend all of the convention activities for free, which provides an excellent opportunity for increasing their knowledge of current pharmacy issues as well as networking opportunitites.  This is an event students should not miss.
  • District Meetings (September)
    APA District Meetings occur throughout the state in September.  Students may attend these meetings with a preceptor or other pharmacist.  This opportunity allows students to meet and network with pharmacists on a regional level within the state.
  • APA Board of Directors & Committees
    The APA Board of Directors includes two students, one from each college of pharmacy in Arkansas.  In addition, the APA places one student from each school on each of the APA Standing Committees.  To express interest in serving on an APA Committee, please contact the ASP Chapter Liaison at your college of pharmacy.
