Topics: Officer Reports

Jeanne Waggener, RPh, DPh, presented the Report of the Incoming President during the 113th Annual Meeting:

“Good afternoon. I am pleased and honored to stand before you today as your incoming president. As you heard from the speeches of my fellow Executive Committee officers, it is an exciting time to be participating in the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy® (NABP®). While NABP has always been in the forefront of innovation with regard to pharmacy regulation and the protection of public health, now more than ever we are endeavoring to accomplish new feats.

“Imagineering may not have been a word we have used before, but it is one that has been at the core of this membership for many years. Imagineering is exemplified by the Executive Committee members and officers who came before me to lead this excellent organization. And it plays out in every state through the board of pharmacy members and staff. These committed people are constantly challenged to come up with new ideas to overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles so that they may protect public health. And yet you still find the energy and imagination to participate in and fuel the innovation.”
