Duties of Delegates
The Chair of the House of Delegates will conduct a welcome webinar in late February or early March to provide new and returning delegates with an overview of service requirements before participating in the March 2024 virtual House of Delegates. The Chair also regularly communicates with delegates through email messages to alert delegates to upcoming action items.
Regional Delegate Conferences are scheduled April 27-30, 2024, and it is recommended that delegates attend one of these sessions either in-person or virtual.
The House of Delegates will meet on two separate occasions at the 2024 ASHP Summer Meetings, scheduled to be held June 8-12, 2024, in Portland, OR.
Additional virtual House of Delegates may be held in May 2024 and November 2024 and/or at additional times, as deemed necessary.
