David Mayper Executive Director PFOA

 

In July, Cardinal held their Retail Business Conference in Washington DC., AmerisourceBergen held their Thoughtspot in Las Vegas, and McKesson held their Ideashare in Orlando. Many of our members attended these shows. It was good to see many of our members as I personally attended the Cardinal and ABC meetings. PFOA events were held at both of these meetings for our members. Representation from PFOA’s Staff attended the Cardinal and ABC meetings. All were packed with good information. Our staff has already been analyzing the events attended and are putting together plans for next year based on observations.

 

Our PBM, ChoiceRx Solutions had a board meeting in July at the Las Vegas site of the ABC meeting. Don Schreiber, Larry McIntosh and I attended this meeting as board members. We took a hard look at what we are doing and accomplishing. More involvement and marketing will be needed to bring the program along and we will be working on bringing solutions to these areas.

 

Ann Benyo began work with us as our Northeast Sales Consultant on June 30th and trained for a considerable part of the month of July. Ann has been out in her territory beginning her introductions to members and creating leads for new membership. She has already proven to be a valuable addition to the staff. Nancy Tataronis is settling in as a consultant to help us with our vendor relations along with her other areas. Jamie Wilbanks continues to call all our members and talk about PUNCH and signing up for rebates via EFT. While July marks the first successful rebates sent via EFT we now have 16 member stores signed up and will be issuing their rebates via EFT.
