Another Successful Convention

NCPA wrapped up its 113th Annual Convention and Trade Exposition Oct. 12, with its House of Delegates electing Lonny Wilson of Oklahoma City, Okla., as the new president for 2011-12. Donnie Calhoun of Anniston, Ala., was elected as president-elect.

"Now more than ever, we need the engagement of our members," Wilson told the delegates meeting in Nashville, Tenn. "Your leadership, thought, time investment, and monetary investment will be paramount to our success. It's a return on investment in the future of our profession with great return on investment opportunities."

The delegates also approved an overhaul of the association's constitution and bylaws, including change the name of the nine-member executive committee to the board of directors. The board elected Mark Riley of Little Rock, Ark., as chairman.

In addition, the delegates adopted four policy resolutions: opposing the proposed merger of Express Scripts and Medco; calling on the Federal Trade Commission "to protect consumers and pharmacies from the anticompetitive and unfair, misleading and deceptive actions of CVS Caremark;" supporting federal incentives for pharmacies to purchase security technologies to deter pharmacy crime; and endorsing "provision of adherence services as a core competency for the profession."
