Officer Installation

(Adopted from the ASHP President-Elect Organization Manual)

The installation ceremony should remind the members of the aims and ideals of the Society and challenge the new officers to lead the members toward these goals.

The ceremony may be conducted by a Past President, a visiting ASHP officer/staff member, or the retiring President.  A brief statement of the responsibilities and objectives to be met by the new officers may precede the oath of office.  All participants in the installation ceremony must be adequately briefed so that it will run smoothly.

The following ceremony is to serve as a guide for officers.   Portions may be omitted or interchanged.  The installing officer should, upon being introduced, take his place at the lectern.  The incoming officers should be introduced and then aligned in front of, or to one side of, the lectern.


1.           Introduction of installing officer

2.           Opening remarks of the installing officer

3.           Installing officer reads the duties of the officers being installed from the Administrative Manual.
