How to Join
MAT (Member Activity Tracker)
This year, the UIC APhA-ASP chapter is implementing a Member Activity Tracker (MAT), in which active members will be rewarded for their motivation, dedication, and participation. We want to recognize you for your all of your contributions to the organization and profession of pharmacy. Points will be awarded based on attendance and participation in various meetings and volunteer events (see below). Members who accumulate half as many points as the member with most points in our chapter will be entered into a raffle at the end of the year for a great prize (your number of entries will be equal to the points you accumulate). The points will also be used to determine eligibility for different awards such as most active member. In addition, participation will also determine eligibility for APhA-ASP graduation honor cords (see below).
Policy:For absence from a volunteer event, the participant must inform the project chair within 48 hours and find a replacement (unless it is an extreme/emergency situation). Failure to do so will result in a point deduction of the potential points the participant would have received had he/she participated in the event.
