Hill Day 2013 at a Glance
Once again this year, IACP worked with Soapbox Consulting, LLC, a D.C.-based company specializing in grassroots advocacy. Soapbox helped to schedule all of IACP’s Member Pharmacist Hill appointments and also conducted a “Being a Good Advocate for Compounding” session. This interactive session provided techniques to successfully convey our position and message to legislators.
