The Minnesota Pharmacists Association is the largest association of pharmacy professionals in the state of Minnesota. Recognized as the voice for the profession by regulatory agencies, allied health professionals and the media, MPhA works effectively with federal, state and local government offices and agencies to advance pharmacy’s position on relative legislative issues.
Check with your employer to see if they cover a portion of MPhA membership. Membership dues can be renewed online and a portion of your dues is tax deductible (consult your tax adviser with questions). We offer a variety of options to make payment more convenient, including a monthly debit program that will debit your credit card, checking or savings account each month.
Your membership includes the below benefits to make you a leader and participant in the future of pharmacy:
MPhA works to provide members with a “voice” in pharmacy at the state and national levels. The association puts a “face on pharmacy” through media and outreach to health care entities who rely on MPhA for information and resources related to pharmacy services.
Through legislative representation, policy planning, and lobbying, the association ensures that issues pertaining to pharmacy are not overlooked or undercut. We fight for the rights of pharmacists and pharmacy professionals to provide the highest level of care to the patients they serve. MPhA encourages members to become involved in this process by being active in grassroots actions and participating in Pharmacy Bulldog events. As a member, you will have access to important updates and resources made possible by your support.
PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT AND EDUCATION
MPhA provides a variety of events throughout the year to keep members involved in pharmacy issues while offering continuing education, networking opportunities and fun! Events are listed online and are open to all. Members receive a discount on selected event programming, such as Annual Meeting, Fall Clinical Symposium, and Midwinter Conference.
Online pharmacy education is also available through the MPhA website. Home Studies and Learn Something offer a variety of topics and timelines to fit your needs.
PRODUCTS AND SERVICES
Members benefit from discounted rates and prices on both professional and business related services.
Communication is our cornerstone of keeping you informed of association, state and national news and action.
We are sensitive to members who would rather receive information in electronic form, rather than printed. If you prefer to read CAPS or the Minnesota Pharmacist online only, please notify Barb Smothers at the MPhA office.
