The popular Pharmacy Compliance Roundtable for chain members, which will be held on Saturday, August 25, is fueled by the engagement of members of NACDS’ Legal and Compliance Workgroups who are central in contributing substantive insights about regulatory and compliance issues, which helps to shape the agenda. The agenda has been finalized to include two guest speakers on Drug Enforcement Administration/opioids and USP Chapter 800 compliance. Additional topics to be covered in member-only discussions during this year’s roundtable will include direct and indirect remuneration (DIR) fees; coupons/discounts/loyalty programs; and expanded scope of practice issues.
This year’s Supply Chain Summit—Navigating the Transportation Conundrum—on August 25, will take a close look at an issue dominating the news cycle—the shortage of truckers in the U.S. Trucking is a vital link in the supply chain, with more than 70 percent of goods in the U.S. being transported by trucks at some point before they reach consumers, according to the American Trucking Associations.
A shortage of drivers, combined with rising gas prices, increasing amounts of freight and the impact of e-commerce and home delivery on driver availability are just a some of the challenges shippers are dealing with daily. The goal of this interactive session, held on Saturday, August 25, is for participants to engage in a collaborative dialogue on how retailers and their suppliers can collaborate to work through this challenging issue.
