Colorado Pharmacy Coalition

Please join the 2019 - 2020 Colorado Pharmacy Coalition! 
     

The focus of the 2019-20 CPC will be the Pharmacy Practice Act Sunset process. The Act will sunset in 2021 but review and feedback will be crucial early in 2020.  This will be an ideal time to discuss changes desired or needed to the practice of Pharmacy in Colorado.  Additional meeting time can be used to discuss 2020 legislative issues.

Meeting Schedule for 2019-2020:

  • December 11
  • January 8
  • February 12
  • March 11
  • April 8
  • May 13 (if needed)

Location: Racine’s, 650 Sherman St., Denver, CO

Time: 7:00AM - 8:30AM 

All meetings are held on the 2nd Wednesday morning of the month from 7:00-8:30am for the duration of the Legislative Session and as needed for the rest of the year. The location is at Racine’s restaurant which is conveniently and centrally located at 650 Sherman St in Denver near the Capitol. Parking is free at the location and the time of the meeting is planned to avoid rush hour and get people on to their day!

We hope you will join us for our upcoming meetings! If you have any legislative, advocacy or policy concerns in the interim, always feel free to reach out to [email protected].

 

The Colorado Pharmacy Coalition (CPC) is an open forum consisting of pharmacy organizations having an interest in pharmacy legislation, policies and other advocacy issues. Colorado Pharmacists Society coordinates and facilitates the CPC but all are encouraged to share. All pharmacists, interns, pharmacy technicians, and pharmacy stakeholders are welcome to attend.

The CPC serves only as an avenue to network and exchange ideas relative to legislative and regulatory issues and does not take a formal position or lobby on any topics. Legislation, regulation and other health care issues affecting pharmacy are discussed at each monthly meeting. Valuable learning, understanding and collaboration is sought so that pharmacy interests may unite, however, it is recognized that each organization represented on the CPC ultimately represents only its members or constituents.

The CPC has also taken an active role in the Pharmacy Sunset process in the past. The Pharmacy Sunset is happening again in 2021.
