David Mayper Executive Director PFOA

Greetings!


The PDS annual meeting in Orlando was held at the end of February and attended by PFOA staffers David Mayper, Nancy Tataronis, Karen Godbold and Wes Drake . We met with existing vendors and gathered relevant material to help our membership. Time was spent networking with business partners and attending members. We hosted a successful dinner for our members, their families and staff sponsored by our business partner, Anda. We appreciate their continued support.

 

I recently attended the 2017 annual FPN meeting along with PFOA staffer Nancy Tataronis and Board and Vendor Committee members Larry McIntosh and Doug Coyle. This meeting has always been a good platform for gathering industry information, vendor updates and networking with industry leaders. During this trip I also worked with Mark Holden in the Southern California area.

 

The PFOA staff held a coverage blitz in Pennsylvania and New Jersey in March. Our members seemed happy to see us and it also gave us opportunity to visit several targets. Thanks to the entire staff for their preparation and execution.

Pharmacists should be aware that as of January 1, 2017, DEA is implementing a new policy related to registrant renewals. DEA quietly changed the policy via a website posting informing registrants that as of January 1, 2017, those with an expired DEA registration will need to fully reapply, that is DEA will no longer allow a "grace period" for expired registrations.

David Mayper Executive Director PFOAGreetings,


During a busy July, staff members attended the annual conferences of AmerisourceBergen, Cardinal and McKesson.  Each of the wholesalers put their best foot forward in terms of education and vendor offerings.  PFOA utilized these events to meet with vendors, strategic business partners and most importantly, our members.  Business reviews were prepared and covered with the attending members who answered our requests.  I thank the entire staff for their efforts.
