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.

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. Take an active role in the push to ban retroactive DIR fees; require PBMs to update MACs; preserve patient pharmacy choice; and more!

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.
