Fellow of the Connecticut Pharmacists Association

Being recognized as a fellow of the Connecticut Pharmacists Association (CPA) is an honor. It signifies that you have made significant contributions to CPA and to the profession of pharmacy that go far beyond regular pharmacy practice.

The CPA Board of Directors has adopted a set of criteria that CPA members must meet or exceed to be considered eligible to earn the designation of Fellow of the Connecticut Pharmacists Association (FCPA). Selected Fellows will be honored at CPA’s annual meeting, New England Pharmacists Convention.


To become eligible as a Fellow in CPA, the candidate must have been a licensed Connecticut pharmacist and an active member of CPA for at least seven years. Membership or activities performed while a student pharmacist are not considered for eligibility. Activities during post- graduate residency training may be included.

Qualified applicants should demonstrate sustained contributions and excellence in pharmacy practice, professional leadership, teaching, professional advocacy and community engagement. FCPA recognition serves as a highly visible way to promote public awareness of pharmacists who have distinguished themselves within CPA and the profession.

If you are interested in nominating a Fellow or personally being recognized as a professional who has met the highest standards in Connecticut pharmacy then please examine the seven categories for fellowship status. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact the CPA at (860) 563-4619 or lcapobianco@ctpharmacists.org

Your pharmacist membership in CPA must remain active at the time of nomination and award.

All application materials must be typed and submitted electronically. Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae or resume, however, the application form must be fully completed without statements such as “refer to CV”.
