Volunteers help make AMCP Nexus 2021 a success.
Volunteers play a key role in the success of Nexus 2021. Through your help, our fall meeting will be a memorable experience for the managed care professionals who will be attending.
Conference Buddy Program
This popular mentorship program is designed to increase visibility and awareness of managed care pharmacy. It matches student pharmacists or new practitioners with a seasoned managed care pharmacist. This pairing meets informally at Nexus 2021 to discuss the managed care pharmacy industry, careers pathways, and AMCP resources available to help student pharmacists and new practitioners. To participate, individuals must sign up to be a mentor or mentee within the Nexus 2021 registration portal by Sept. 28.
AMCP will start the matching process on Oct. 8. Those who sign up should expect to hear back at that time. Matches are made in order of registration date, and we will do our best to accommodate those who meet the deadline.
AMCP Booth Volunteers
Booth volunteers help staff the AMCP Concierge booth. Attendees visit the booth to ask questions about the meeting, membership, and/or AMCP programs and activities. To assist booth volunteers, AMCP staff provides host materials including frequently asked questions (FAQs) before the meeting and onsite in the booth. Volunteer shifts are one hour each. Sign up to be a booth volunteer.
AMCP Foundation Best Poster Judge
Review and score an assigned set of poster abstracts before Nexus 2021. The Best Student, Best Resident/Fellow, and Best Graduate Student poster recipients are selected based on judges’ scores. Sign up to be an AMCP Foundation Best Poster Judge.
AMCP Foundation Poster Mentor
Poster mentors prepare poster presenters to speak about their research by visiting assigned posters, asking questions of the presenters, and providing feedback. Onsite, the poster mentors are expected to spend 5 – 15 minutes with a selection of poster presenters on Oct. 18. Mentors will only be assigned to poster presentations in the student and resident/fellow non-reviewed categories. Sign up to be an AMCP Foundation Poster Mentor.
Education Session Moderators
Each education session has a volunteer moderator assigned to it. Moderators make housekeeping announcements at the beginning and end of the session, introduce faculty, keep the session on track with scheduled start and end times, facilitate the Q&A period, and ensure that no product endorsements occur during the session. In addition, moderators are provided with a script to follow. You must be a member and be registered for AMCP Nexus 2021 to participate. Sign-up will be available in August.
