ACCP Report - April 2017

New Meeting Template Will Enhance the ACCP Annual Meeting


2017 Annual Meeting

The 2017 ACCP Annual Meeting will be held October 7–10, 2017, in Phoenix—dubbed the cosmopolitan heart of Arizona and the soul of the American Southwest. Educational sessions and activities will be held at the Phoenix Convention Center, located in the heart of the city and just steps away from the Sheraton Grand Phoenix, ACCP’s headquarters hotel.

In 2017, the ACCP Annual Meeting will feature a newly enhanced meeting template that will increase your participation in and access to educational sessions and maximize the use and value of your time during the meeting.

As a 2017 ACCP Annual Meeting attendee, you can expect the following changes:

  • ACCP Annual Meeting will end 1 day earlier, Tuesday, October 10, after a full day of educational programming.
  • Presymposia will no longer be offered. Programs typically offered as a presymposium (e.g., the Clinical Reasoning Series and ACCP Academy primers) will now be embedded in the main meeting schedule.
  • Keynote Address: The Annual Meeting will officially begin Saturday morning, October 7, with the welcome and keynote address. After the keynote address, a full day of educational programming will begin, including educational sessions developed by the 2017 ACCP Annual Meeting Program Committee, ACCP Practice and Research Network (PRN) focus sessions, and ACCP Academy primers.
  • PRN Business Meeting and Networking Forums will be offered Sunday, October 8, and Monday, October 9.
  • ACCP Annual Fellows Dinner will now be held Friday, October 6, 7:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m., instead of Saturday evening, as was customary. More details will be provided to the appropriate parties at a later date.

In addition to these enhancements, the meeting schedule of events will offer 13 new and engaging core educational sessions developed by the 2017 Annual Meeting Program Committee, highly specialized PRN focus sessions, curricular-based ACCP Academy programming, scientific poster and platform presentations, excellent networking opportunities, and the increasingly popular Clinical Pharmacy Challenge.
