2024 Elections to the BOPA Executive Committee: Call for nomination of members

BOPA is looking for new Executive Committee members who are dedicated to furthering the association’s aims and who are willing, and able, to spend time helping run the organisation. Those elected will be involved in working on and supporting the BOPA Vision and Strategy, contributing to national objectives and workstreams, advocating for Cancer Pharmacy, supporting our subcommittees and be part of arranging the highly regarded annual conference – plus much more!

The Executive Committee work as a team, supporting each other on behalf of our members and our patients.  The committee has a streamlined format to fit in with busy work schedules for its regular meetings, consisting of a 2-hour tele-conference call once every month, with up to a maximum of two face-to-face meetings during the year.  You will be expected to attend a minimum of 50% of committee meetings every year, and everyone will be expected to lead on a project from our work plan.  It is also an expectation that BOPA related work will take up approximately 1-2 hours/week in addition to the scheduled meetings – it is important that you can commit to this work load.

This is a really exciting opportunity to shape the BOPA Vision and Strategy as well as giving you great experience of working at a national level and building links and relationships with colleagues from across the UK.

This year we are looking for the following positions to fill:

  • Standard Committee place (1 place available)
  • Independent Sector Representative (1 place available)
  • New to Oncology Representative (1 place available – Please Note: <2 years experience to be eligible for this position)
