“We are very pleased to welcome these early career pharmacy leaders to ASHP as our 2022–2023 Executive Fellows," said ASHP CEO Paul W.

The entire ASHP staff team looks forward to mentoring and helping them achieve their goals as future association leaders."
The ASHP Executive Fellowship in Association Leadership and Management was created in 1968 (known as the ASHP Executive Residency until 2017) for those interested in a career in association management. Graduates of ASHP's training program have served in leadership roles in associations, government, for-profit corporations, academia, philanthropy, and various other sectors.
Housed at the Joseph A. Oddis Global Headquarters of ASHP in Bethesda, Maryland, the program trains pharmacists in the many facets of association management, including executive leadership, strategic planning, member engagement, and many other essential business management functions.
Lewis, Lindsay, and Pinard will begin the fellowship in July. They will be engaged in various projects and activities throughout the year that will serve as the foundation of their training.
