PTSBC is seeking nominations for the 2022/2023 PTSBC Board Members.  

You can play an important role in these elections by identifying and nominating the best possible candidates or deciding to run yourself.

Board members have a significant role and responsibility. It is important to remember that while an election process is used to establish Board membership, the mandates of the Society are to promote education and communication; enhance and strengthen leadership capabilities; promote professionalism; act as a valuable resource for pharmacy technicians and pharmacy assistants in BC.
Board members bring diverse points of view to the table and work as a team to make sound decisions in the society’s interest.

Nominations for the upcoming Board elections must be submitted using the online form by October 3rd, 2022 at 5:00 PM.

Nominees are to include a brief biography and upload a photo.

Full active pharmacy technicians are eligible to run in the Board elections.

Elected Board members will be announced at the conference AGM


PTSBC would like to highlight the work by pharmacy departments or individuals.  What extraordinary efforts of groups / individuals are you displaying to help the community at large inside or outside of the workplace setting?  How are you giving back to the community?  Please go to our facebook page and post your highlights.

The third Tuesday in October is National Pharmacy Technician Day.  It is a day to make an extra effort to thank technicians for their invaluable support and contributions throughout the year!

PTSBC is celebrating National Pharmacy Technician Day, October 17th, 2023 by distributing buttons to those interested.
