The Independent Pharmacy Cooperative (IPC), the nation’s largest buying group for independent pharmacies announces a major change to its spring conference.  

The IPC spring conference is now open to any pharmacy without regard to which wholesaler or buying group the pharmacy belongs.  Concurrent with that change the meeting is now called, The IPC Independent Pharmacy Conference. The next event will be held April 6 – 9 in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Anderson says, “Our hope is that organizing an event that brings pharmacy owners and managers together that buy from different suppliers will allow them to interact with others they do not normally meet at wholesaler or other buying group events.”  

Anderson says some key elements of the meeting that make it attractive are; an inspiring opening general session, interactive social events and small group sharing sessions that focus on specific aspects of pharmacy such as medication synchronization, specialty pharmacy or serving long term care facilities.  Finally, he says, “Our CE speakers have a clear business purpose that ensures pharmacy owners leave with practical business knowledge that helps them become more profitable.”
