The College is pleased to announce George Walton as the Board’s newest government appointed member. A lawyer in Victoria specializing in corporate and commercial law, including software licensing, manufacturing and distribution, Mr. Walton’s past civic involvement includes serving as Director of the Vancouver Island Better Business Bureau, the Vancouver Island Gold Society, the University of Victoria Foundation, and Director of the Allen and Loreen Vandekerkhove Foundation.
In the September 21, 2012 Board meeting the Board approved in principle, for public comment, the revised Bylaws. Those bylaws were then posted for public comments during the Fall of 2012. After the public commenting period ended on December 28, 2012 the College reviewed, analyzed, and presented the comments to the Board for their consideration.
The Board approved a fee schedule that will reduce licence fees for a majority of registrants. This is substantial for pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, and student registrants as they will see significant fee reductions. Annual pharmacist registration fees will now be set at a flat rate of $530 a year. Fees for pharmacy technicians will remain at 2/3 of the full pharmacist fee. Perhaps the most exciting part of the fee reduction proposal is that student fees will now be completely eliminated.
