NCPA represents the 23,000 community pharmacies and their pharmacists.

Mark Riley, P.D. NCPA President

NCPA President Mark Riley, is the executive vice president of the Arkansas Pharmacists Association and an authority on pharmacy benefit managers. Riley owns East End Pharmacy in Little Rock, where he was pharmacist-in-charge for 20 years. He earned his bachelor of science in pharmacy and his doctor of pharmacy from the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences College of Pharmacy. A one-time pharmacy benefit manager (PBM) executive, Riley has been asked by over 160 businesses to advise them on pharmacy benefit management

Lonny Wilson DPh

Past NCPA President Wilson is one of the original founders of Pharmacist Providers of Oklahoma (PPOk), a buying group, switching service, and administrator of managed care drug plans. He has been its CEO since 1989 and owns three pharmacies in the Oklahoma City area. He also is chairman of the board of directors of the medication therapy management company Mirixa, established by NCPA.

One of Wilson's main concerns both at PPOk and NCPA has been the general price erosion in the community pharmacy marketplace and the especially deleterious effect of differing generic drug maximum allowable cost rates on third party contracting.
