Get Involved in CPS

Committees | Task Forces | Academies

Serving on a CPS committee gives you the opportunity to directly engage in the profession and association. Share your experience, expertise and passion to help the association better serve its members and advance the profession. Committee involvement is also a great opportunity to create connections with colleagues across the state. Each year, CPS leaders select pharmacists, residents, and pharmacy technicians from a variety of practice settings to serve on the committees below.

Committees & Task Forces


Current Volunteer Opportunities


  • Communications Committee - Committee members support the committee’s focus areas of website management, social media, and the CPS newsletter. Specifically, members  help create content for social media posts, review the CPS website for accuracy and updates, and optimize the newsletter. Focus areas for this year are member engagement, workplace conditions, and diversity, equity and inclusion.
  • Legislative Committee - Committee members have an interest and passion for advocacy and are willing to understand legislative issues, and the impact those issues may have on pharmacy practice. 
  • Membership Committee - The committee is responsible for retaining membership and growing the organization. Committee members engage current membership and identify opportunities to grow CPS based on the needs of all parts of the pharmacy community.
  • Continuing Education - Committee members identify timely topics of interest to members and help contact and arrange speakers for the programs.  Additionally, the co-chair (open position) would help moderate the CE webinars.
  • Executive Committee
  • Finance Committee
  • CPS Annual Meeting Planning Committee - Committee members help to identify topics, speakers, and plan fun networking activities for the CPS Annual Meeting. We ask members to act as a liaison to the speakers and encourage attendance at the Annual Meeting to introduce the speaker you have been working with (attendance is not a requirement to participate in the committee). Active members receive discounts on future meetings.
  • CPS Winter Meeting Planning Committee - Winter Meeting Committee members meet once per month from July - January. Members help identify topics and speakers for the Winter meeting, review and offer feedback for speaker presentations, assist with introducing speakers at the Winter meeting, and assist with obtaining prizes and donations for the meeting. Active members receive discounts on future meetings.


  • Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Task Force - Taskforce members have an active voice in shaping how DEI is fostered within CPS and the profession of pharmacy. Current activities include creating DEI-related content for the CPS e-newsletter, identifying relevant speakers for upcoming conferences, and proactively addressing needs within the organization.
  • Workplace Conditions and Wellbeing Taskforce - Taskforce members collaborate to identify relevant issues that affect all areas of pharmacy practice, provide recommendations and resources to support our pharmacy teams and wellbeing through collaboration with the CPS Board and other relevant external stakeholders.

If you have other ideas, we would love to hear those too!  CPS always needs people who have skills in fundraising, marketing, social media, advocacy, technology, partnerships, and anything else you can think of.  If you have an area of clinical expertise we can utilize, let us know that too! We always want to hear about new things YOU think we should be involved in.   

Webinar Co-Coordinator 

Ready to help CPS fulfill its commitment to education of its members?

CPS is proud to offer our member pharmacists and technicians FREE accredited CE through our virtual webinar program. Our current webinar Coordinator, Kandi Icenhower, PharmD, has been doing an excellent job over the past several years to offer our members timely and interesting CE presentations.

We are recruiting for a member to help Kandi with this effort.  It involves developing ideas on timely topics, contacting and serving as a liaison for the identified speakers, and helping moderate the program.  While we typically offer 4-6 CE webinars per year, this would likely entail helping with approx 2-3 webinars per year.  This is an easy way to get involved with our educational efforts at CPS, serve in a rewarding role, and work with Kandi - which is a plus!

Interested? Please email [email protected]  with your CV and a short paragraph of interest by EOD Thursday July 28, 2022. 

Details?  Official APhA policy is developed by the APhA House of Delegates. Comprised of delegates from state pharmacy associations, APhA membership academies, affiliated organizations, recognized pharmacy organizations, and ex-officio groups, the House of Delegates meets during the APhA Annual Meeting and Exposition to debate and adopt policy proposals developed throughout the year. The House sessions are presided over by the Speaker of the House of Delegates.   Each year, the Colorado Pharmacists Society sends three delegates to represent the state at the American Pharmacists Association (APhA) House of Delegates (HOD). The HOD meets in person annually at the APhA Annual Meeting and Exposition and is the supervising body responsible for developing and amending official APhA policy statements. The HOD has a large diversity of representation from nearly all states and territories, including representatives from each of the APhA Academies, large pharmacy organizations, federal pharmacy, and ex-officio (or former leadership) members.
