The Florida Pharmacy Association held its 125th Annual Meeting and Convention on June 24 to 28, 2015 in St. Augustine, FL.  
The Dade County Pharmacy Association was well represented in attendance and at the House of Delegates.  

During the conference, the House of Delegates  decided on several policy issues for the association and the profession.  These
issues included housekeeping issues for the Florida Pharmacy Association such as retiring the treasurer's restricted health fair
account and modifications to the Association Bylaws.  

The House
passed a resolution requesting that the FPA advocate and support changes to Florida Laws and rules to allow
pharmacists to expand the emergency dispensing limit of chronic medications from 72hours to 30 days.

The House discussed several
other resolutions which were ultimately withdrawn by the authors or were referred to a standing
council for further elucidation.
 Topics involved:  1) the recognition of current and past members to a "Hall of Fame"; 2) term
limits for the FPA Board of Directors elected positions; 3) supporting pharmacists' autonomy to dispense greater than a 30 day
supply (i.e. 90 days) to facilitate copay savings for patients.

If you have any ideas for resolution topics, it is never too early to start the discussion and drafting process.
