Phi Lambda Sigma Annual House of Delegates Meeting
The House of Delegates, as the legislative and governing body, is the supreme authority in the Phi Lambda Sigma Pharmacy Leadership Organization. As such, it speaks for the student pharmacist, alumni and honorary members of the Organization and for the pharmacy profession in the United States.
The PLS House of Delegates meeting takes place annually. Due to the evolving situation of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and growing health concerns, the 2020 Phi Lambda Sigma Annual House of Delegates (HOD) Meeting and Awards Ceremony will take place virtually on April 19th, 2020. Delegate sign-in will begin at 3:00PM EST. The HOD meeting will begin promptly at 4:00PM EST.
Each active PLS chapter is entitled to a voting delegate and an alternate delegate. Alternate delegates shall be allowed all the privileges except that of the voting, but shall be allowed to vote in the absence of the voting delegate.
All additional information including meeting agenda, election packets and proposed updates to the Constitution and Bylaws will be sent prior to the meeting. The link will be disseminated to registered Delegates prior to the meeting date.
The 2020 PLS Awards Ceremony will take place directly after the end of the House of Delegates. Awards presented include: Leadership Challenge, Chapter of the Year, Advisor of the Year, Alumnus of the Year and the P&G Leadership Award. Regional Liaisons, outgoing and incoming officers will also be acknowledged.
