About State Affiliates
ASHP establishes formal affiliation agreements with state organizations which share ASHP's vision and commitment to serve the unique needs of pharmacists in hospitals and health systems. Health-system pharmacy's value and influence is extended through the development of mutually supportive relationships at the state and national level.
ASHP supports the growth of its affiliates through programs and services aimed at assisting their development and enhancement. State affiliates actively participate in shaping ASHP's national agenda for health-system pharmacy. State affiliates are important to ASHP as the establishment of a grassroots network of organizations enhances ASHP's ability to understand and respond to issues affecting health system practitioners and to grow health-system leaders within the states.
