Nominee for President-Elect on the Executive Committee (1-Year Term)

Susan Ksiazek, RPh, Member, New York State Board of Pharmacy

In serving the needs of its member boards, as it has for the past 113 years, NABP always relied on the support of the member boards to develop and sustain new programs and services. As President, what strategies do you believe NABP will need to employ in order to meet the increasing needs of the member boards when support at the state level is limited?

The first strategy, achieved with the 2016 member survey, was to query our members about their needs and the value NABP brings. Next will be a critical evaluation of their feedback and a benefit analysis of our offerings. Driver programs will continue to fund value added services.

NABP is evolving. We remain a well of expert guidance from which states can draw, but with more active partnerships, such as filling a need for pharmacy/wholesaler inspections. Mining NABP databases for licensure/regulatory adherence can be an efficient means for states to fulfill their public protection mission despite diminishing resources. Use of technology (eg. live meeting streaming) may be a strategy for states with travel restrictions. Strong member engagement is critical to our vision statement.

Nominee for Treasurer on the Executive Committee (1-Year Term)

Jack W. "Jay" Campbell IV, JD, RPh, Executive Director, North Carolina Board of Pharmacy

The Presidential election clearly provided unexpected results and contradicted almost every prediction and poll. As Treasurer of NABP, how do you think the financial markets will respond to the new administration and what should NABP do to maintain its strong fiscal position?

As a trustee for a retirement plan, I have read many market analyses since the presidential election. They reflect the election process itself -- the only certainty is uncertainty. Market forecasts are, of course, highly dependent on policy choices on issues such as trade policy, infrastructure spending, tax and regulatory reform. Much remains to be seen in each area. While the administration has painted broad strokes, details remain scant. The key to protecting NABP's fiscal position is intense monitoring of investment performance, constant scrutiny of expert market analyses, built-in "trip wires" for investments that hedge losses and maximize opportunities, as well as flexible and nimble investment strategy. NABP's policies are strong in these areas. I will ensure they remain so.

Nominee for Treasurer on the Executive Committee (1-Year Term)

Kenneth L. Saunders, RP, PharmD, TTS, Member, Nebraska Board of Pharmacy

The Presidential election clearly provided unexpected results and contradicted almost every prediction and poll. As Treasurer of NABP, how do you think the financial markets will respond to the new administration and what should NABP do to maintain its strong fiscal position?

1.) Lower taxes will stimulate the markets.

2.) With the repeal of ACA, health care costs will decrease, giving companies and the insured that use the insurance more money to invest.

3.) The make up of the President's Cabinet is primarily from the business sector. Considering both his and his Cabinet's business experience, the cost of running the government will decrease. The decrease in government costs will grow the economy.

The markets will look at these factors favorably and therefore the markets will move upward. The NABP should invest conservatively and when interest rates do increase, move more of its monies into bonds and other interest-based investments.

Nominee for the District 3 Open Member Position on the Executive Committee (3-Year Term)

Lee Ann F. Bundrick, RPh, Administrator, South Carolina Board of Pharmacy

The role of a board of pharmacy member is a complex responsibility posing unique opportunities and challenges. What do you feel is the single most challenging aspect of and the most unique opportunity when serving on a board of pharmacy and, subsequently, serving as a member of the NABP Executive Committee?

The single most challenging aspect of serving as a board of pharmacy member would be dealing with political influences. A board of pharmacy member needs to preserve the integrity of the processes of the Board and stay within the statutory authority of the Board as he/she deals with licensing, permitting, compliance, disciplinary and legislative issues.

The most unique opportunity when serving on a board and, subsequently, serving on the NABP Executive Committee would be to have a voice of reason and objectivity while protecting the public as it relates to the practice of pharmacy. You would be knowledgeable of national issues and federal and state laws so you could keep stakeholders apprised of current issues, challenges and/or changes to the profession.

Nominee for the District 3 Open Member Position on the Executive Committee (3-Year Term)

Reginald "Reggie" Dilliard, DPh, Executive Director, Tennessee Board of Pharmacy

The role of a board of pharmacy member is a complex responsibility posing unique opportunities and challenges. What do you feel is the single most challenging aspect of and the most unique opportunity when serving on a board of pharmacy and, subsequently, serving as a member of the NABP Executive Committee?

If forced to choose a single challenge to serving on the Board of Pharmacy and the Executive Committee, I think it is being able to set aside personal bias and being able to open up the mindset to allow for innovative processes and thinking that move patient safety forward. Many times these initiatives are counter to what a board member might consider standard practice based on their experience but offer ways to improve safety in practice. The ability of a member to move "outside the box" is crucial as we move the practice forward with rules that allow for the inevitable changes we all see. As a member of the Executive Committee, this is even more important as model rules are developed and the Committee must lead the process of rule development in this area.

Nominee for the District 4 Open Member Position on the Executive Committee (3-Year Term)

Philip P. Burgess, MBA, DPh, RPh, Member, Illinois State Board of Pharmacy

The role of a board of pharmacy member is a complex responsibility posing unique opportunities and challenges. What do you feel is the single most challenging aspect of and the most unique opportunity when serving on a board of pharmacy and, subsequently, serving as a member of the NABP Executive Committee?

The most challenging aspect of serving on a Board of Pharmacy is consistently making decisions that are in the overall best interest of patients and improving their care. There are many opportunities for Boards to explore ways to expand the scope of practice for pharmacists and promulgate regulations which are not "stumbling blocks", while always ensuring that the #1 priority must be to protect the health and welfare of the citizens in their state.

In my first term on the EC, I have seen many State Boards struggling with budgetary constraints. Each state has unique challenges. There is a definite need for NABP to continue to expand its services to provide a support system to help Boards function more effectively as well as facilitate the sharing between Board members of best practices.

The role of a board of pharmacy member is a complex responsibility posing unique opportunities and challenges. What do you feel is the single most challenging aspect of and the most unique opportunity when serving on a board of pharmacy and subsequently, serving as a member of the NABP Executive Committee?

I believe the "single most challenging aspect" of serving on a Board of Pharmacy and on the Executive Committee, is learning that when we make decisions, we need to remove ourselves from any biases we may have developed based on our practice experiences. Because pharmacy practice is constantly changing, new and innovative ideas are presented to members at almost every meeting. We have to learn to step back from our comfort level to look at an innovations and proposals before us and make decisions based on what is the best solution to protect the public health, safety and welfare. This ability to protect the health of our patients through the regulation of the practice of pharmacy is truly a unique opportunity offered to us as members or executive officers of Boards of Pharmacy.

Douglas R. Lang, RPh, Member, Missouri Board of Pharmacy

The role of a board of pharmacy member is a complex responsibility posing unique opportunities and challenges. What do you feel is the single most challenging aspect of and the most unique opportunity when serving on a board of pharmacy and, subsequently, serving as a member of the NABP Executive Committee? All of us who have the honor and the privilege to serve as a pharmacy board member serve to protect the public. Today’s health care delivery model is multi-layered and complex, as well as its regulatory framework. We need to protect the public, but simplify its requirements for our licensees and registrants. We need to innovate and collaborate on a regulatory frame work that allows patients to have the maximum flexibility in how, when, and where they desire to access pharmacy services by the stroke of a key. The mission of NABP is to align the resources and services of the organization in assisting its membership in meeting their mission in protecting the public. Further, it is to communicate to the public and policy stakeholders the valuable role you provide in ensuring public safety. View Doug's CV


Nominee for the District 8 Open Member Position on the Executive Committee (3-year term)

Richard B. Mazzoni, RPh, Chair, New Mexico Board of Pharmacy

The role of a board of pharmacy member is a complex responsibility posing unique opportunities and challenges. What do you feel is the single most challenging aspect of and the most unique opportunity when serving on a board of pharmacy and subsequently, serving as a member of the NABP Executive Committee?

The most challenging aspect for a board member is to regulate responsibly and without bias to protect the citizens of their state. At the same time, members must maintain the flexibility to see the "big picture" and not needlessly inhibit progress in the delivery of pharmacy services. This, in itself, is the unique opportunity: to really make a difference in the profession and, at the same time, protect the public.

As to the Executive Committee, the most challenging aspect is the awesome responsibility of helping to guide a large and influential association. NABP's leadership in the regulatory community is unquestioned. To be a part of the leadership of the most respected organization in the regulatory community is a once in a lifetime opportunity for which I'm humbled and grateful.
