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 — our Legislative Briefings — happen twice a year: in the fall and in the spring. They’re the time pharmacists 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.

The briefings are organized by GPhA’s regional presidents, so each is a bit different and reflects the style of the area.

(Not sure what region you’re in? No problem. Click here for a map and a list of counties in each — you can also reach out to your region’s president.)

Briefings might include CPE credit, guest speakers, and often dinner (or at least hors d’oeuvres). Bottom line: They’re some of the best networking opportunities with fellow professionals you’ll get all year.

Spring 2017 Regional Legislative Briefings

Learn about the issues impacting your pharmacy practice and your patients’ ability to access and afford healthcare — issues the Georgia legislature took up this year — at your neighborhood briefing.

GPhA’s Legislative Briefings are when pharmacists 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.

This April, GPhA is looking back at the 2017 legislative session. What’s next for Georgia pharmacists regarding the Pharmacy Patient Fair Practices Act? Using Georgia’s PDMP? Pharmacist supervision? We’ll review all these questions 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 meal  and some of the best networking opportunities outside of the Georgia Pharmacy Convention.
