Cynthia Phillips was recently appointed a Regional Councilor for the Mid-Atlantic (Region III) of The Rho Chi Society (pharmacy honor society) through March 2014 (to complete the term of former member). She currently serves as faculty advisor for our Gamma Psi chapter in SC. Regional Councilors are members of The Rho Chi Society who represent the interests of chapters in their region on the Executive Council and who promote the mission and vision of the Society through their interactions with the chapters they represent. In many instances, Regional Councilors will be or will have been Faculty Advisors for their school or college chapter. In their role, Regional Councilors serve as the elected representative of the chapters in their region and thus, are a critical link to the National organization. Regional Councilors should have a thorough knowledge of the Society and its Bylaws, especially as it applies to local chapter conduct.
