Head for the Hill!

 IACP’s 18th Annual Compounders on Capitol Hill, June 23-26, 2012
JW Marriott on Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington, D.C.

Anticipation has been building for another successful Compounders on Capitol Hill (CCH) in Washington, D.C.  IACP Member Pharmacists and Pharmacist Technicians, friends and colleagues will soon gather on behalf of their patients and practitioners to take several vital issues to the Hill in a continuing effort to Protect, Promote and Advance Pharmacy Compounding!

The always popular Hill Day will take place during CCH on Tuesday, June 26, 2012. This traditional component of IACP’s Compounders on Capitol Hill includes the face-to-face visits with Congressional and Senatorial delegations where IACP Members communicate to their respective representatives issues that are of critical concern to their patients.

Introducing the CCH 2012 Congressional Asks:

For 2012, there are three primary issues that IACP Members will be taking to the Hill.  Click below for the three IACP Congressional Ask briefing documents to obtain background on our legislative agenda for this year.

New in 2012 – Virtual Hill Day!

For the first time, IACP also will be using technology to put its Members who could not personally attend CCH right there in those hallways and on the Capitol steps… at least virtually.   IACP’s unique Action Alert system will provide these Members with a personalized, IACP-prepared request for support for these 2012 Congressional Asks directly from their home or pharmacy straight to the offices of their Representative and their Senator.

IACP Members will receive on Sunday, June 24, 2012 information and links on how to send a message to Capitol Hill.  It will only take a few minutes and will literally help quadruple the number of compounding pharmacist voices ringing throughout the halls of Congress.

IACP will continue to keep its membership apprised on these critical issues and developments going forward.  See you in Washington D.C. for what promises to be the biggest and most successful Compounders on Capitol Hill ever!
