AACP Financial Resources and Infrastructure
How do we ensure that the organization has the financial resources short-term (one to three years) and long-term and the necessary infrastructure to support the mission and vision?
Several important staffing changes were implemented in the past year to increase member programs and services and enhance AACP’s outreach. Karna M. Mapes became AACP’s first Director of Education, overseeing the expanding portfolio of member development programs. Shaba A. Lightfoot, Manager of Student Affairs, expands our staff supporting PharmCAS and other student services programs.
Jennifer L. Adams, Barbra A. Gustis and Cecilia M. Plaza were advanced with new responsibilities as Senior Directors, creating new capacity to develop partnerships with a wide variety of organizations offering services to benefit AACP members.
Following the retirement of Robert “Buzz” Kerr, Ruth E. Nemire joined AACP as Associate Executive Vice President and Chief of Staff. Innovation in teaching and learning and leadership programming are top priorities for Dr. Nemire and the Academic Affairs team she leads.
Kyle R. Bagin also joined the AACP staff. He serves in the new position of Communications Assistant.
AACP experienced change in its tenancy at 1727-1729 King Street. The legacy tenant at the headquarters property needed additional office space (as did AACP) and moved early in the year. In June, the new National Association of Specialty Pharmacy established its Washington area headquarters at 1729 King Street. The credentialing organization for NASP is also headquartered here. AACP sees great synergy potential in the relationship with NASP.
