The Michigan Pharmacists Association is currently seeking a forward thinking Chief Executive Officer (CEO) with a strategic management style and a history of successfully growing departments/organizations to meet their full potential. The Michigan Pharmacists Association (MPA), a well-respected 130+ year-old professional society, is the one of the largest state pharmacy associations in the country serving members in all practice settings – including students and pharmacy technicians. After 36 years of service, MPA’s current CEO is retiring and the next leader will be entrusted with continuing efforts to advance the organization and the profession.
A successful candidate will be a natural relationship builder; ideally someone who is already connected to the pharmacy industry. As the public face of the Michigan Pharmacists Association, the CEO must have an engaging, yet diplomatic approach and be passionate about providing advocacy and resources in support of the pharmacy profession. The position requires a transparent, collaborative leader with a proven track record of growing membership and building engagement, cultivating shared goals, and positioning an organization for relevance and sustainability in the years to come.
