Date:9/1/2011

WASHINGTON, Sept. 1, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Pharmacy Technician Certification Board (PTCB) Board of Governors Chair, Thomas E. Menighan, announced today that Melissa Murer Corrigan, PTCB Executive Director & Chief Executive Officer, will step down in late November 2011 to join ACT's Workforce Development Division as Vice President of Development. The PTCB Board will initiate a search for a new executive in the coming weeks. Upon Murer Corrigan's departure, William Schimmel, Associate Executive Director, will serve as Interim Executive Director.

In 1994, under Murer Corrigan's leadership, the American Pharmaceutical Association, the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists, the Illinois Council of Health-System Pharmacists, and the Michigan Pharmacists Association formed PTCB, the first national certification program for pharmacy technicians. In 2001, the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy joined PTCB as a governing organization.

As founding Executive Director/CEO of PTCB, Murer Corrigan has been a visionary in the pharmacy community, leading an organization that has certified over 400,000 pharmacy technicians nationwide. While pioneering changes in the credentialing industry, Murer Corrigan created strategic alliances and partnerships with major employers, educators, state pharmacy associations, and State Boards of Pharmacy.

"On behalf of the PTCB Board of Governors, I congratulate Melissa on her new position," Menighan expressed. "As the organization transitions, we remain confident in the high stakes and high volume PTCB Certification Program and its role to support pharmacists in advancing patient safety."

Murer Corrigan is currently serving as the 2010-2011 President of the Institute for Credentialing Excellence. She has also been recognized for her vision and dedication to the pharmacy and credentialing professions. In 2010, she was awarded the Drake University College of Pharmacy Lawrence C. and Delores M. Weaver Medal of Honor. In 2008, Murer Corrigan was awarded the NOCA Certification Industry Leadership Award.  

"My tenure with PTCB has been full of unprecedented growth and accomplishment, not only for pharmacy, but for the development of the nation's workforce. With PTCB, I have recognized the important role pharmacy technicians play in improving patient care," shared Murer Corrigan. "In joining ACT, I am excited to use that experience to create new and innovative employment and certification solutions for America's workforce."
