    NCPA 2013 Annual Convention and Trade Exposition

    in Business

    Did You Make a Good Decision in 2013?


    Meet. Learn. Succeed.


    The 115th Annual NCPA Convention and Trade Exposition is now history. We hope you were able to join thousands of your colleagues in Orlando, Oct. 12-17 to meet friends, learn from experts, and succeed back home with new ideas and knowledge. We consider attending the convention to be a worthwhile investment in your business.


    The industry-leading continuing education programming was headed by some of your favorite and most experienced speakers, who provided insights on profit boosters in areas such as adherence, compounding, long-term care, and front-end overhaul.


    Other popular sessions included five technology seminars, Joy Baldridge on practical strategies for reducing stress in the pharmacy, and the pitfalls of credit card security breaches and new HIPAA requirements with Mark Wayne and Harry Lattanzio. For more information on our programming, see our Convention CE.


    Keynote speaker President Bill Clinton told the Second General Session, “I like this group because you deal with real people, real problems, and you have to be practical.” Meeting in the shadow of Disney’s Magic Kingdom NCPA’s outgoing president joked, “This must be Fantasy Land. Donnie Calhoun giving a speech right after President Bill Clinton.” NCPA CEO Doug Hoey declared, “Pharmacy’s time is NOW.” Citing the rising costs of medication misuse, non-adherence, and prescription drug abuse Hoey said, “I challenge anyone to pinpoint a time in history when there has been a greater need for a community pharmacist than NOW.”


    That’s just some of the flavor. We hope you were there. Either way, it’s not too soon to be planning for the next NCPA convention Oct. 18-22 in Austin, Tex. See you there.
