APA Regional Meetings 

The Alabama Pharmacy Association is divided into twelve regions. Each year APA conducts meetings in each region. In the past they have only been offered in the fall, between September and November. But we're trying something new this year. The meetings will be spread out a little, beginning in April. The Regional 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.

More information on Regional Meetings.

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 10th Annual Wear APA Day will be Tuesday, October 15, 2019!
