IACP Regional Education
Meetings for Compounders
The IACP Regional Education Meeting is a traveling live pharmacy law CE seminar that gives pharmacists and technicians 2.0 contact hours (.20 CEUs) of ACPE-approved LIVE LAW continuing education credit and a chance to learn and network with their local colleagues. In 2014, attendees will hear from IACP's Executive Vice President & CEO David G. Miller, RPh as he presents Pharmacy Compounding Law and Regulations: Staying Current in a Changing World, an in-depth presentation on federal and state legislative and regulatory issues that affect compounding pharmacies.
In the two hour seminar, participants will learn how regulatory initiatives and court decisions have influenced the regulation of compounders, the authority of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) when inspecting compounding pharmacies, and up-to-date information on the current federal proposed legislation. Are YOU current on your compounding pharmacy law? Never assume. Whether you’re a veteran compounder or just thinking about implementing this critical health service for your community, we hope you’ll join us for an evening of education and fellowship.
Stay tuned! IACP will announce 2014 cities as they become finalized.

Read what past attendees are saying about the IACP Regional Education Meeting:
“The Regional IACP meeting is a must for compounders who seek to stay up to date on significant new state and federal regulatory issues. It affords IACP members the chance to work with their colleagues in a collaborative – not a competitive – way. This will be a tremendous opportunity to ask questions about local issues that affect our practice and I recommend that all of my colleagues attend.”
- Ernest P. Gates, Jr., RPh, FASCP, FIACP, Gates Healthcare Associates, Host for Waltham, Mass. Regional Educational Meeting
“Let’s face it, Law and especially Pharmacy Law can be really boring! Not the case at IACP’s Regional Educational Meeting where David Miller takes you on an adventure of Pharmacy Compounding Law past to present, encourages audience participation and gives out prizes (we can’t tell you what kind, you have to come to the meeting and find out)! By the end of this session, we had acquired 2.0 contact hours (.20 CEUs) of continuing education credit and had a great time, too! There is constant change going on in regulation at both the state and federal levels. IACP’s Regional Educational Meetings provide an invaluable way to stay current and also network with your colleagues.”
- Lisa D. Ashworth, BS Pharm, RPh, Children's Medical Center Dallas, Host for Dallas, Texas Regional Educational Meeting
“The seminar was great and extremely helpful to me and to my pharmacy. Dave was entertaining and informative, no sleeping thru this lecture.”
- Raylene Mote, PharmD, Inland Compounding Pharmacy, Attendee at Sherman Oaks, Calif. Regional Education Meeting
“This is the first time I have heard David Miller. He is one of the most knowledgeable speakers on compounding I have encountered.”
- Wendy Galbraith, PharmD, BCNP, University of Oklahoma College of Pharmacy, Attendee at Tulsa, Okla. Regional Education Meeting
“IACP amazes me. With so few employees how IACP is able to accomplish so much. IACP protects and promotes the profession of compounding, acts as a professional resource to their members and creates a sense of unity between compounders, wholesalers and various professional organizations. I've owned a compounding pharmacy for just over two years. I joined IACP this year. I regret not joining earlier. Ideally, if I was starting over, it should have been my first membership. Their insight and expertise has helped our pharmacy in countless ways.
I've completed many CE's administered by IACP, but seeing them in person was really worth it. I am thankful for the individual attention to my questions. The staff at IACP has always been extremely helpful. I look forward to the Educational Conference in Dana Point California in February.”
- Charlene Vernak, RPh, Vernak Farms Country Store, Attendee at Tulsa, Okla. Regional Education Meeting
