Regional Meetings

APA Regional Meetings are back! The 2022 meetings will follow the same format as pre-COVID years with a dinner followed by a program of state pharmacy leaders presenting an overall look at several key issues affecting the profession. Regional Meetings will offer 2.5 hours of LIVE continuing education. Each meeting will start with dinner at 6:30pm, followed by the program at 7:00pm. 

APA holds annual meetings in each of its five regions during the fall. This year, we will be holding six in-person events and one virtual event on Zoom. 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.

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.
