Call for Volunteers 


Your Participation is Powerful!

TPA is a volunteer-led organization, and we seek dedicated individuals to volunteer their time to serve on boards, councils, committees, and (at times) task forces. These entities focus on a variety of issues and events. Volunteering can offer you a very rewarding experience! You’ll have the opportunity to develop leadership skills, acquire experience to add to your résumé, and meet and interact with new colleagues while helping guide TPA activities.


Councils and Committees

TPA's President-Elect appoints members to serve on several councils and committees. To be considered for appointment, volunteers must sign up by the deadline (typically in the summer). Every effort will be made to appoint all volunteers. Council and Committee assignments are made each summer.

Other Boards

Besides the TPA Board, there is also the Texas Pharmacy Foundation Board of Trustees and the Texas Pharmacy Association Political Action Committee (PAC) Board of Directors. These boards work to secure funding for their respective purposes. If you are interested in serving on either the Foundation or PAC Board, please sign up online or email Debbie Garza and indicate your preference.

The Foundation’s mission is to advance the profession of pharmacy through research and scholarship.

The PAC’s primary focus is to heighten pharmacy’s awareness and increase pharmacy’s influence in the state’s political process.
