APA Fall District Meetings
The Alabama Pharmacy Association is divided into twelve regional districts. Every year, APA conducts a meeting in each district between late August and November. The District Meetings provide pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, student pharmacists and those interested in the profession an opportunity to gather and discuss state and national issues and earn continuing education credit.
Wear APA Day
October 19, 2010 was the first annual “Wear APA Day”. Members were encouraged to show support and pride for the pharmacy profession by wearing their APA shirts to work or school. APA encourages you to take photos of your group in their APA shirts and send them to the APA office for publication in our journal. The 8th Annual Wear APA to Work Day will be on Tuesday, October 17, 2017!
