About the Board

PSA is committed to good governance – the fourth pillar of our Strategic Intent – to ensure our capability to deliver member value. The Board of the Pharmaceutical Society of Australia Limited is made up of nominees of the States and Territories, along with board appointed positions, and meets regularly throughout the year to fulfil its obligations under the law and PSA Constitution.

 

The Board’s duties include monitoring the affairs of PSA to ensure it promotes and fulfils its objectives, in addition to guiding, reviewing and approving the Society’s Strategic Intent and policies.

 

The Board also ensures the Society’s Strategic Intent and policies are implemented and recruits and supervises the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the organisation.

 

It’s also charged with approving the PSA’s Budget to provide resources for various activities and strategic projects.

 

Under the Constitution, the Board has the power to appoint three Board Appointed Directors. To promote diversity the Board has appointed an Early Career Pharmacist (ECP) Director and Tony Evans and Sara Pantzer as Independent Directors.

 

The Board receives reports from the CEO, Managers and Branch Committees to ensure members’ interests are represented.
