As part of your MPA membership, you are enrolled in a local association, to build relationships with those in your area of the state, advancing the pharmacy profession. The map below identifies the active local associations across the state. You are allowed to affiliate with the local association of your choice, however if you do no select a local, MPA will match you to the local association closest to your residence.
Michigan Pharmacists Association depends heavily upon its local associations to call attention to issues which demand review at the state level, to provide input on issues and to assist in carrying out programs developed to deal with the issues affecting pharmacy.
The local association system helps to achieve state and local strength by unification of programs, improved communications and stronger professional representation at the state level.
Local associations are also given special recognition, services and privileges. Each local association is granted recognition status in the MPA House of Delegates. In addition, compliant local associations also receive operational funding for each MPA member in the local association.
