On Saturday, whether you’re a section member, a student or just want to catch up with your colleagues, there’s a luncheon with your name on it!
After wrapping up CE sessions on Saturday, it’s time for attendees to get dressed up and head to the cocktail reception and Annual Banquet & Awards Ceremony. The incoming president is officially sworn in and leaders in Michigan pharmacy are recognized with various awards.
Student pharmacists also have the opportunity to attend the Banquet and network with practicing pharmacists through the MPF Adopt-a-Student program.
Continuing education sessions continue until 2 p.m. on Sunday and business is conducted during MPA’s House of Delegates Session.
Local association leaders gather on Sunday as well for their annual program that, in the past, has provided valuable tools for increasing membership and holding innovative events.
