2020 Alcalde Southwest Leadership Conference
April 2020 in-person event has been cancelled. A possible Spring 2020 virtual event to be announced soon.
What is the Alcalde Southwest Leadership Conference?
Alcalde 2020, the 34th Annual Southwest Leadership Conference, intends to provide encouragement and learning experiences that will promote creativity, scholarship, leadership, and the presentation of evidence-based research. To the extent possible, the process adopted for presentation at Alcalde is patterned after that of ASHP, to provide practical experience in getting ready for a national presentation.
Alcalde, the Spanish title for the mayor of the town or village, is derived from the Arabic word al-qadi, or “judge”. Fortunately, the term was applied to local government officials whose functions were varied but always included a judicial element. Types of alcalde were differentiated according to the specialized nature of their judicial functions: the alcalde de corte was a judge in the palace court with jurisdiction in and about the residence of the king; the alcalde mayor assisted the judges appointed by the king in the towns. Since the 19th Century, the alcalde has had the dual role of the local council and representative of the central government. The pharmacy resident, fellow or preceptor must also serve a dual role as a leader among his or her peers and as a representative of the profession.
