NCPA Congressional Pharmacy Fly-In

This is a critical time for community pharmacy. Congress is writing the biggest health care laws in seven years, and you need to have a seat at the table. As an expert on pharmacy and patient care, lawmakers need to hear from YOU. The only way Members of Congress will understand the issues community pharmacy owners are facing is if they hear firsthand from you about PBMs' unfair practices and how they impact your patients and your business.

Make your voice heard in the halls of Congress by attending the Congressional Pharmacy Fly-In (formerly known as the Congressional Pharmacy Summit) April 26-27, 2017 and take an active role in advocating for our industry. We've reformatted the event and reduced the price to make it easier for you to come to Washington to meet with key decision-makers who make things happen on Capitol Hill—all it takes is one day with our new, compacted schedule this year.

Event Registration and Accommodations:

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the new format of this year's meeting, the Hilton Alexandria will serve as the anchor hotel. However, in order to give you more flexibility to choose a hotel that suits your budget and needs, we have not reserved a room block at any particular hotel. Above is a listing of hotel options in the Washington, D.C. area.
