The National Community Pharmacists’ Association is a professional organization dedicated to the promotion of all aspects of independent community pharmacy practice.  In addition to their activities related to enhancing the provision of pharmacist care, the Association is actively involved at the national level in a variety of legislative efforts. These include pro-consumer issues such as access to care, patient education initiatives and reimbursement for pharmacists’ cognitive services.

The organization sponsors several national meetings yearly, offers a monthly publication and student newsletter, and through its Foundation provides student loans and scholarships. Local student members participate in a variety of community service projects.
