The Association of Pharmacy Technicians UK is planning to employ its first salaried chief executive.
Tess Fenn, whose term of office as APTUK president should have ended in June, has seen her tenure extended to February 2019 while members are consulted and legal work takes place to update the Association’s Memorandum and Articles to support the proposed changes.
The long term aim is to appoint a president and vice-president and introduce paid director posts: initially this would be that of a chief executive officer to join the executive team and to oversee the leadership of the Association.
During December and January elections will take place for a president and vice president of the Association, who will formally be appointed on February 9. They will work towards the development of the CEO post.
