The American Pharmacists Association (APhA), the national professional society of
pharmacists, was founded in 1852 and is the first established and largest professional
association of pharmacists in the United States. The more than 50,000 members of APhA
include practicing pharmacists, pharmaceutical scientists, pharmacy students, pharmacy
technicians, and others interested in advancing the profession.
The Association is a leader in providing professional information and education for
pharmacists and an advocate for improved health of the American public through the
provision of comprehensive pharmaceutical care.
Founded in 1900, the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP) is the national
organization representing the interests of pharmaceutical education and educators.
Comprising all 85 U.S. pharmacy colleges and schools including more than 4,000 faculty,
36,000 students enrolled in professional programs, and 3,600 individuals pursuing
graduate study, AACP is committed to excellence in pharmaceutical education.
American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists
The American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists (AAPS) provides a dynamic international
forum for the exchange of knowledge among scientists to enhance their contributions
to health.The organization offers timely scientific programs, on-going education,
opportunities for networking, and professional development.

The American College of Clinical Pharmacy (ACCP) is a professional and scientific
society that provides leadership, education, advocacy, and resources enabling clinical
pharmacists to achieve excellence in practice and research.
ACCP's membership is composed of practitioners, scientists, educators, administrators,
students, residents, fellows, and others committed to excellence in clinical pharmacy
and patient pharmacotherapy.
ASHP is the 30,000-member national professional association that represents pharmacists
who practice in hospitals, health maintenance organizations, long-term care facilities,
home care, and other components of health care systems. ASHP, which has a long history
of medication-error prevention efforts, believes that the mission of pharmacists is
to help people make the best use of medicines. Assisting pharmacists in fulfilling
this mission is ASHP's primary objective.
The Society has extensive publishing and educational programs designed to help members

of Retail Druggists (NARD), represents the pharmacist owners, managers, and employees
of nearly 25,000 independent community pharmacies across the United States. Independent
pharmacists - more than 60,000 nationwide - dispense the majority of the nation's
retail prescription drugs.
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.

through advocacy and by facilitating the growth, development, and recognition of our
members as practitioners and leaders in health care.
