Colorado Pharmacy Coalition

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. 

Tentative Meeting Schedule for 2018-19:

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