Annual Meeting

2020 Annual Meeting is Going Virtual!

The week of September 17-18, 2020.

COME TOGETHER to Celebrate
Professional Achievements in Iowa Pharmacy!

IPA’s Annual Meeting is the epicenter of pharmacy practice in Iowa. Each year pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, and student pharmacists come together from across the state to discuss policy, share innovative ideas, and make meaningful connections with colleagues and pharmacy leaders. Plan now to:
  • Take an active role in setting policy that will steer association action now
  • Hear and share innovative ideas to implement at your practice and advance the profession 
  • Recharge by connecting with like-minded colleagues to build you network and opportunities for collaboration
Join us at Annual Meeting to advance and celebrate your profession and you’ll leave refreshed and invigorated to better serve your patients!

Agenda at a Glance

House of Delegates

The House of Delegates is IPA’s policy-making body and is composed of members from across the state. The House will act on policy recommendations brought to it by standing committees and individual delegates. Policy committee reports will be posted soon.

Innovation & Research Forums

The 2020 Innovation and Research Forums will take place virtually on the original Annual Meeting date, June 18-19. As always, these forums will showcase innovations from pharmacists and pharmacy residents across the state, driving practice transformation. By taking the Innovation and Research Forums virtual, up to six hours of CE will be available. Click here for more information.

More Poster Presentations

IPA’s poster presentations, which highlight original projects or research that advance the practice of pharmacy in Iowa, have been expanded to two separate sessions. That’s twice the Iowa pharmacy innovation on display. Present your poster or meet with the presenters to discuss their projects (or both!).
Posters are judged based on originality and innovation, reproducibility, impact on the profession, presentation and methodology, and the IPA Foundation will present its Poster Presentation Award to the winner at the second session of the IPA House of Delegates on Friday afternoon.
To participate in the poster presentation, submit a poster abstract here by August 31, 2020.
