The National Community Pharmacists Association, founded in 1898 as the National Association of Retail Druggists (NARD), represents the pharmacist owners, managers, and employees of more than 23,000 independent community pharmacies across the United States. The nation’s independent pharmacies, independent pharmacy franchises, and independent chains dispense nearly half of the nation’s retail prescription medicines.
The nation’s independent pharmacists are small business entrepreneurs and multifaceted health care providers who represent a vital part of the United States’ health care delivery system. They have roots in America’s communities. They are community leaders actively involved in community-oriented public health, civic, and volunteer projects. Many hold local elected offices; others serve as state legislators.
NCPA members receive weekly and biweekly newsletters on issues important to your business and future. Other benefits include access to member forums; personalized answers to business and operating questions; a variety of competitively priced insurance options; discounts on conference registrations; and much more.
