Board Valuable Resources

We support our member boards of pharmacy by offering many services and resources:

  • Examinations that assess pharmacists’ competency to practice pharmacy, providing boards a uniform, high-quality solution when making a determination of competence
  • The pharmacist Electronic Licensure Transfer Program that alleviates the administrative burden on boards by verifying pharmacists’ applications for license transfer
  • Inspection tools and services that create uniform standards and perform inspections to supplement board staff and ease financial burden

Volunteer Opportunities

While membership dues are paid by the boards of pharmacy, it is the members and staff of the 65 member boards that make NABP the successful, progressive Association it is today. As board of pharmacy members, your input is essential to addressing the many issues facing boards of pharmacy and the practice today. Participation in these activities is a rewarding way to assist in our shared mission to protect the public health.

Volunteer to serve on a committee or task force.

Task Forces

Single-issue task forces are established each year and often address topics from resolutions approved at the Annual Meeting.

Standing Committees

Standing committees, with meetings held every year, include:

Committee on Constitution and Bylaws
Committee on Law Enforcement/Legislation
Advisory Committee on Examinations

Examination Committees

Examination committees write and review test questions to ensure the integrity and validity of the examinations.

Apply Today

If you are interested in participating on the Committee on Constitution and Bylaws, the Committee on Law Enforcement/Legislation, or a single-issue task force, fill out this form. All materials will be forwarded to the NABP president-elect, who will make the appointments when he or she becomes NABP president following the Annual Meeting.

For other committees, you will need to separately submit your materials. To apply for an examination committee, fill out this online application. For the Advisory Committee on Examinations, submit a cover letter and current CV directly to the NABP Executive Office.  

Each year, we receive an overwhelming response from our members who wish to serve on a committee or task force. While appointing individuals to serve on task forces, the NABP president will give priority to volunteers who are current or past representatives of state boards of pharmacy.

Presentation Template for Professional Outreach

Looking for a way to explain the role of your board of pharmacy to others?

The following presentation can help. In addition to a general explanation, it includes several examples of how boards promote education around the opioid epidemic, including drug take-back programs and naloxone distribution. The presentation can be shown to pharmacists, technicians, students, patients, and caregivers to educate them on the role of boards in the community. Currently, topics include the boards’ role in addressing the opioid epidemic and implementing prescription monitoring programs, but we will update this presentation with relevant topics as they arise.

Boards of pharmacy are encouraged to download and personalize this presentation.
