Slate of Nominees for AIHP’s Board of Directors Announced

AIHP’s Nominations Committee has announced the slate of nominees for positions on the Institute’s Board of Directors. Reflecting the high volunteer spirit of our members, Institute members in the upcoming election will have the opportunity to choose between two nominees to fill one position on the Board. 

AIHP’s bylaws charge the Nominations Committee (comprised of President John Grabenstein and Directors Catherine Taglieri and Arthur Daemmrich) with selecting nominees to fill the positions of elected officers and directors whose terms are expiring. AIHP’s Board of Directors includes five officers (three of whom are elected), three elected directors, two ex officio directors, and up to three Board-appointed directors.

The terms of two elected directors will expire at the end of 2022: Vice President Cynthia J. Boyle and Director Arthur Daemmrich. A term-limit provision in AIHP’s bylaws bars Dr. Daemmrich, who is completing his second three-year term, from continued service on the Board.

The Committee has nominated Dr. Boyle to stand for re-election as Vice President. Ms. Boyle first joined AIHP’s Board of Directors in 2020 as an appointed director. The Board elected her to the position of Vice President in December 2021 to serve the remaining year of the term of Vice President John Grabenstein, who had vacated that position in November 2021 to become AIHP’s President.

Dr. Boyle recently retired from her position as a Professor at the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy. She earned pharmacy degrees from the University of Oklahoma College of Pharmacy and the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy, and she has practiced pharmacy in the community, health system, and consulting settings. She is past president of the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP) and a former president of her state pharmacy association and its foundation. Dr. Boyle has been an AIHP member since 2003.

Institute members will choose between two nominees to fill the director position being vacated by Dr. Daemmrich. The Nominations Committee has nominated Patricia C. Kienle and Terri Smith Moore.

She co-leads AACP’s efforts in Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Anti-racism, and works on AACP initiatives related to public health, academic innovations and practice transformation in pharmacy.

Dr. Moore has a BS Pharmacy degree, an MBA in Health Services Administration, both from Howard University, and a PhD in pharmacy administration from the University of Texas at Austin.  Dr. Moore has numerous publications and presentations to her credit, including serving as editor of A History of Pharmaceutical Education at Howard University 1868–1981 (2019). She has been an AIHP member since 2021.

As required by AIHP’s bylaws, the Nominations Committee will present this slate of nominees at the Institute’s Annual Members Meeting (previously called the Annual Business Meeting), which will be held Thursday, November 10, starting at 1:00 pm Central. (More information about the Annual Members Meeting, including the agenda and a link for joining the online meeting, will be posted on the Institute’s website shortly.)

Under AIHP bylaws, any member in attendance at the Annual Members Meeting can nominate additional candidates if seconded by two other members. The Nominations Committee’s slate, plus any additional members nominated at the meeting, will appear on a digital ballot circulated to members about two weeks later, in late November. The elected directors will take office in January 2023.
