Message from the Board
By: SPA Executive Vice President Steven Webbenhurst
Are you tired of getting bad news? Well we have THREE great things to share with you!
First, our annual award banquet/meeting is extra special this year. It will be the 100th anniversary for the organization. That’s right, it’s our centennial. We are celebrating at The Centennial Hotel (how appropriate) on Friday, September 17th. Tickets are on sale now, and you can save some money by taking advantage of our early-bird pricing. Members/guests are just $25 each and non-members are $35 each. Hurry, as early-bird pricing ends August 1st. If you’re not a member, it’s a great time to join or renew and save with our member rates. Click here to register! It’s a 1920’s themed party starting with social hour from 5-7pm with live music, then a plated dinner with dessert. We have a special entertainment surprise plus our keynote speaker is Dr. Mark Leid, Dean of the WSU College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences. And don’t forget, it’s also award night. Nominations are now being accepted for Pharmacist of the Year, Pharmacy of the Year, Pharmacy Student of the Year and Pharmacy Technician of the Year. Who will you nominate?
We are also joining with WSPA and having a special night on August 10th. It’s a social event for members and non-members and the theme is S’mores (because it’s national S’mores Day). More details to follow and starts at 5pm.
We are also having a July CE event online for pharmacists and techs. It is on Wednesday, July 28th from 6-7pm. It’s on Antimicrobial Stewardship Strategies in Ambulatory Healthcare which is an under discussed topic. Hope you join us for 1 hour of CE credit.
