The Department of Health, Health Systems Quality Assurance, is accepting applications to fill two pharmacists and one public member vacancies scheduled for January 2020 for the Pharmacy Quality Assurance Commission (Commission.


We will accept application for this recruitment through June 1, 2019.


Commission membership is as follows: four public members; ten pharmacists; and one pharmacy technician. Commissioners are appointed by Governor and serve four-year terms. All members must be citizens of the United States and residents of the state of Washington.


Public members are appointed from the public at large and cannot be affiliated with any aspect of pharmacy, but should have an interest in the rights of consumers of health services.


Pharmacist members must hold an active Washington pharmacist license of this state for a period of at least five consecutive years immediately preceding appointment and must at all time during their incumbency continue to be duly licensed.


The Governor's Office and the Department of Health seek diversity in board and commission members. We recognize the value variety brings in understanding and serving the people of Washington State. We need candidates with diverse backgrounds and those who provide geographic representation throughout the state.


Commission members attend regular one and one-half day meetings normally scheduled on Thursdays and Fridays during business hours seven to eight times a year. The typical time commitment ranges between twelve and fifteen days per year. This may include the Department of Health one-day board, commission, and committee conference and new member orientation.


In addition, commission members participate on disciplinary panels, subcommittees, or rules workshops that meet by telephone or in person several times per year. Sometimes panels meet with short notice in order to respond to emergent situations to protect the public. Hearings to consider licensing or disciplinary matters may also be scheduled separately from regular board business meetings.


If you are interested in applying for an appointment to the Pharmacy Quality Assurance Commission, please go to Governor’s website and complete the application online at


We appreciate your consideration of this request. If you have any questions about serving on the Pharmacy Quality Assurance Commission please contact me at 360-236-4834, or at
