    APA is making an investment to develop future pharmacy leaders in our state and in our association. Our expectation is that participants have a desire to invest in the future of APA. Participants of the Alabama Pharmacy Association Young Pharmacist Leadership Conference will be expected to attend and participate in each of the scheduled events. The Conference will be held in a retreat type environment to enhance the exchange of ideas, information, and overall communication between participants. The Leadership Conference is a learning experience and requires a commitment by the participant and the participant's employer.
