2022 Pharmacy Legislative Day
VPhA’s annual Pharmacy Legislative Day is the cornerstone of the association’s legislative and public policy efforts. This is an opportunity to visit the Pocahontas building to meet with your legislator and discuss important policies impacting YOUR profession. This year’s event will return to the Capitol for pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, and student pharmacists to play a key role in influencing important legislation! We are still waiting on official guidance on what is permitted for lobby days and will be scaling back our normal event to comply with COVID-19 precautions.
Space is limited to 50 Pharmacy Professionals (Pharmacists and Technicians) and 10 Students per pharmacy school (40 total spots). Sign-ups will be honored on a first-come-first-served basis.
Meeting Room TBA
