Deadline for submission: October 26, 2012

Planning has officially begun for the 2013 MPhA Annual Meeting, May 17-18, 2013, at the Marriott Minneapolis Northwest in Brooklyn Park. This new and improved Annual Meeting gives you the chance to speak to more than 350 attendees face-to-face.

Request for Proposals

For the first time, MPhA offers you the opportunity to demonstrate your knowledge and expertise to all attendees. We are requesting submissions of speakers and presenters for this two-day program.

Proposal Requirements

The 2013 Annual Meeting will have multiple one-hour breakout sessions during the two days of the conference. Sessions that are accepted will be presented on Friday, May 17 and Saturday, May 18, 2013.

Topic Ideas for Sessions Identified by MPhA Annual Meeting Committee:

Selection Process

After careful review of all proposals, the MPhA Annual Meeting Committee will select all speakers.

  3. Presenters will be responsible for providing copies of their presentation handouts if they are essential to the presentation. Attendees will be offered the opportunity to print handouts prior to the conference via email notification.

All Pharmacists Now Required to Set Up NABP e-Profile for CPE Monitor!

If you have not already done so, take 10 minutes to sign up to begin easily tracking your CE credits. CPE Monitor is now available through the collaborative efforts of NABP, the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and ACPE providers. It allows you to electronically keep track of CPE credits from ACPE-accredited providers. To view and track these credits, you must first set up an NABP e-Profile, obtain your NABP e-Profile ID, and register for CPE Monitor. You may do so by clicking on the "Log in to CPE Monitor" link below. ACPE-accredited providers will ask for your e-Profile ID and your date of birth in order to properly record your CPE credits through the system. MPhA is an ACPE-accredited provider and is investing resources to transition its systems to CPE Monitor. All MPhA members (both pharmacists and technicians) were asked to sign up by October 1, 2012 as the new reporting period begins.

More about CPE Monitor

When you click on the link above, you will be brought to a secure Web page. A secure or encrypted Website address begins with HTTPS rather than HTTP, and often includes an icon in the browser such as a padlock.

How CPE Monitor Works

You will receive a unique ID after setting up your e-Profile with NABP and registering for CPE Monitor. As ACPE-accredited providers transition their systems to CPE Monitor throughout 2012, you will need to begin providing your NABP e-Profile ID and date of birth to the provider when you register for CPE or submit a request for credit. The system will then direct electronic data from ACPE-accredited providers to ACPE and then to NABP, ensuring that CPE credit is officially verified by the providers. Once information is received by NABP, you will be able to log in to access information about your completed CPE.

In addition, it is anticipated that in 2013 boards of pharmacy will have the option of requesting reports on their licensees, eventually eliminating the need for you to send paper copies of CPE statements of credit to the boards for activities from ACPE-accredited providers.

In Phase 2 of the CPE Monitor initiative, CPE Monitor will add a function to track CPE from providers not accredited by ACPE in addition to CPE from ACPE-accredited providers. Until Phase 2 is completed, pharmacists and technicians will need to submit proof of non-ACPE accredited CPE directly to the board of pharmacy when required to do so.
