The PTCB Board of Governors is comprised of six members, PTCB’s Executive Director and CEO Everett B. McAllister, RPh, MPA, and one representative from each of PTCB’s five governing organizations, listed below:
- American Pharmacists Association
- American Society of Health-System Pharmacists
- Illinois Council of Health-System Pharmacists
- Michigan Pharmacists Association
- National Association of Boards of Pharmacy
PTCB’s mission is to advocate a single national standard for pharmacy technician certification, a position consistent with the approach used by other health professions, including the pharmacist licensure process. PTCB develops, maintains, promotes, and administers a nationally accredited certification and recertification program for pharmacy technicians to enable the most effective support of pharmacists to advance patient safety.
Everett McAllister was appointed PTCB’s Executive Director and Chief Executive Officer by the Board of Governors effective March 5, 2012. PTCB has continued to move forward to advance PTCB’s mission under Everett’s leadership, implementing a new online certification management system, a new website, and working with PTCB’s strategic partners toward developing an advanced certification program. He serves as PTCB’s liaison to all pharmacy organizations. Under his leadership, PTCB will continue to study initiatives to update our certification eligibility requirements, which have remained largely unchanged since the organization’s founding in 1995.
