NCPA Updates--November 2008

NCPA Ownership Workshop
Brought to you with support from Pharmacists Mutual Insurance Company and continuing support from the NCPA Foundation, this 3-day course in pharmacy ownership and management is specifically designed for potential pharmacy owners and provides an intensive curriculum of finance, business analysis, marketing, and much more! In addition, several pharmacy owners will be on hand to provide their perspective on how they got started, the risks, and the rewards of pharmacy ownership. More than 50% of past workshop participants now own their own pharmacy. Meet and ask questions to past workshop participants who have successfully opened multiple stores and see how easy it is done.
Where: Holiday Inn Hotel Cleveland Airport, Cleveland, Ohio
When: November 7-9, 2008
The cost of the workshop is $595 for NCPA members and $770 for nonmembers (includes 1 year staff pharmacist membership). The registration fee includes all meals, 2 nights’ lodging, tuition, and continuing education processing. Class size is limited to the first 50 paid registrants.
