The Georgia Pharmacy Association

Regional Legislative Briefings

Meet, greet, and have a meal with friends while you’re updated on the latest information about our advocacy efforts.

GPhA’s regional updates happen twice a year: in the fall and spring. They’re the time pharmacists, technicians, and students across Georgia sit down with friends and colleagues in their part of the state to catch up on the latest in the world of Georgia pharmacy.

Briefings include CPE credit, guest speakers, and dinner. Bottom line: They’re some of the best networking opportunities with fellow professionals you’ll get all year.

Fall 2017 Briefings

This fall, GPhA is looking at the effects of the new laws and regulations passed this year: the new restrictions on PBMs, how technician and staff supervision rules have changed, and what’s next for Georgia’s PDMP.

We’ll review all this and more in a lively format with plenty of time for Q and A.

We’re keeping it casual and fun — GPhA’s regional presidents organize the briefings to reflect the area’s preferences and style. There will be a full dinner and some of the best networking opportunities outside of the Georgia Pharmacy Convention.
