Pharmacists Help People Live Healthier, Better Lives
AACP Connect is a platform that allows users to network, collaborate, share, and much more using the Community discussion boards and libraries. Keep informed and stay in tuned to what is happening with your peers by logging in and joining Communities. Each Council, Section, and Special Interest Group has their own Community. There are various specialized Communities as well accessible to all AACP members.
Benefits and Requirements
Communities provide an informal and flexible way for members with like-minded interests to discuss current issues facing the profession.
- With the exception of Section and SIG Communities members can join an unlimited number of Communities that are open to all AACP members. Invite only Communities will only be available to members specifically invited to that Community by the Community leader.

- If a Community drops below 5 discussion posts per month on average and has less than 30 members the Community will be discontinued. Communities are reviewed every 12 months.

Volunteer Opportunities Board
We are excited to announce the release of our Volunteer Opportunities Board in AACP Connect! Volunteers are integral to AACP's success. Our goal for the new volunteer management system is to capture all of our volunteer opportunities and establish a simple process for engaging volunteers. By volunteering for AACP opportunities you can become more engaged with AACP and your peers. You will also have the opportunity to track your own volunteering history for a path towards leadership positions within the governance group structure of the association.
