Committees

Want to play a bigger role within the faculty? How about improving your leadership skills? Well now is your chance to get involved with the only national undergraduate pharmacy organization in Canada! CAPSI has various committees for students to join.

General Fundraising

Interested in show production? CAPSI’s Fundraiser is looking to gather a team of individuals in helping create one of our biggest events of the year: Next Top Pharmacist (NTP).

A little background info: NTP, held in a style of a pageant, will contain a series of trials. This varies every year, and can range from a talents showcase, to a white-coat catwalk. The winner of each local NTP will then go on to compete in Canada’s NTP at the upcoming Professional Development Week, held in Edmonton next year!

So, if planning an entertaining night showcasing UBC’s pride and spirit is your thing, apply now to become a part of our Fundraising Committee.

Please contact the Fundraiser (fundraiser@capsiubc.com) if you have any questions.

PDW Fundraising

The main duty of the PDW Fundraising Committee is to organize social events and raise money for pharmacy students attending PDW. Members of the Committee have the benefit of receiving partial cost subsidization of Professional Development Week (PDW).

PDW is an annual pharmacy conference where students expand their health care knowledge, apply their practical skills, and gain networking experience with brilliant individuals in the field. Only by becoming a CAPSI member will you have the opportunity to attend such an amazing event.

Apart from receiving partial cost subsidization, members of the PDW 2018 Fundraising Committee will also gain valuable experiences in organizing and executing projects. These experiences will not only look good on your resume, but will also help you succeed in future leadership roles.

Please contact the PDW Fundraiser (pdw_fundraiser@capsiubc.com) if you have any questions.
