Richard S. Berman Awards Reception

Each year ASCP hosts a special gathering of ASCP leaders, award winners, and Annual Meeting attendees.

The Richard Berman Leadership Awards Reception is not only an opportunity to shine the spotlight on well deceived honorees, but it’s also the the perfect festive setting to kick-off the Annual Meeting by meeting up with old friends, making new acquaintances, and engaging with the ASCP leadership.

The reception is open to all registered ASCP Annual Meeting attendees.

George F. Archambault Award

In honor of the “father of consultant pharmacy”, the Society’s highest honor is conferred to an individual for their outstanding contributions to consultant and senior care pharmacy.

The award is competitive. The selection of the Archambault Award recipient is made by a mail vote of past recipients of the award. The decision of the past award recipients will be final and without appeal. Each year the past recipients of the Archambault Award will evaluate the individual's contributions to consultant pharmacy based on the qualifications described above, determined from information submitted within the nomination. ASCP will notify all award nominees of the outcome of their nominations by October 1.

To honor George F. Archambault, ASCP developed the Archambault Award. George F. Archambault is considered the "father of consultant pharmacy" and this award is considered to be the Society's highest honor. Both a pharmacist and a lawyer, Archambault was the Washington editor of Drug Intelligence and Clinical Pharmacy and a pharmacy and drug distribution systems consultant to hospitals and related institutions. In addition, he maintained a private law practice. Before his death on January 1, 2001, Archambault devoted almost 70 years to pharmacy service, receiving nearly every major award in American pharmacy.

Awardees will receive a complimentary registration to the Annual Meeting, up to $1,000 to defray meeting-related expenses, and an award.
