The 2018 Leadership Summit and House of Delegates theme is Traveling the Road Forward. The program will be inspirational and motivational and provide you with the opportunity to network, learn and share with your peers throughout the day. The morning program will feature invigorating messages of creating change and professional advancement, tips for working across generational differences, and insights into succession planning to achieve your professional advancement goals. We will share MPhA and pharmacy’s advocacy successes in the afternoon and be challenged to lay the groundwork for future advocacy initiatives to enable pharmacists to meet the health needs of Minnesota communities. During the House of Delegates, you will hear the State of MPhA from leadership, discuss policy proposals and new business and install MPhA’s new leadership for the year. We’ll close our day with a networking reception honoring our Past Presidents and MPhA volunteers. The day is designed to provide us with a glimpse of how far we have come to advance patient care and practice and where we need to go next.

By participating, you will join your colleagues in advancing Minnesota pharmacy practice! You’ll be involved in discussions on important initiatives and pharmacy’s advocacy agenda and earn 4.25 hours of continuing education credits.

The MPhA House of Delegates serves as the primary policy-making body for MPhA and determines the official positions for the organization on important issues. This governing body meets annually. Topics range from organizational issues (such as how the organization is structured) to professional issues (such as scope of practice and provider status) to public affairs issues (such as public positions on policy matters).

During registration, you’ll be asked if you are willing to serve as a delegate and for what district, academy, group or affiliation. MPhA strives to include you as a delegate to your preferred district, academy or group, however, we reserve the right to assign delegates as needed for full representation.

The House of Delegates annual business meeting will include recognizing member achievements through the MPhA leadership awards, installing new officers and board members, learning about strategic plan progress and committee achievements, and presenting and reviewing 2018 policy proposals. A number of important issues will be discussed. This is your time as a member to voice your opinions and shape your association!

We look forward to seeing you at the Midland Hills Country Club in Roseville on May 31!
