Important Notice for All Members!

PPA has had to make the very difficult decision to cancel our annual Legislative Day on Wednesday, April 8. The decision was made because the PA House of Representatives suddenly cancelled session for that day and it looks the Senate may do the same or at least leave early. Therefore there would be no one here in Harrisburg with whom to meet, all of which rather defeats the whole purpose.However, we know that for our independent owners the time to do something is now!  We are looking at alternative dates in May or June to schedule a modified version focusing on our Medicaid Reform package. We will be calling on all our independent owners to commit to participate in that day. As soon as we have something scheduled, we will let you know.  Others are welcome as well.Scheduling Legislative Day is always challenging, given the few session days in early spring, coupled with holidays and other events such as APhA. With this year being an important election year, session days were very limited anyways.  Reserving the space we needed at the Capitol is one more factor and we are fighting many other groups for limited space. Unfortunately, fortune did not look our way this year.I thank all of you who already had this on your schedule and were making plans to join us. We had great dreams of it being our largest and best ever! It was not to be.

 

Do not get discouraged though - we will have an event for our Medicaid Bill package and we will return to trying again next year for our usual signature event.Please don't hesitate to reach out to me with your questions, comments, or concerns!
