Regional Meetings

This year's APA Regional Meetings will be held virtually on every Thursday in September and once in October. The virtual meeting will follow the same format as previous years with state pharmacy leaders presenting an overall look at several key issues affecting the profession. For the first time Regional Meetings will offer 2.5 hours of LIVE ACPE accreditation. Each meeting will start at 6:30pm on Zoom.

APA holds annual meetings in each of its five regions during the fall.  During Regional Meetings, members may hear from APA staff, the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences and Harding University Colleges of Pharmacy and the Arkansas State Board of Pharmacy.  State legislators often attend as well.

Regional meetings provide an opportunity for APA members to get an update on state and national legislation affecting pharmacy and exchange information about the most current challenges in the profession.
