Carmen A. Catizone, Executive Director/Secretary, presented the Report of the Executive Director/Secretary during the 108th Annual Meeting:

Philadelphia is kind of an interesting marker for me because it was the site of the first Annual Meeting that I attended in 1986. At that time, the theme of the meeting was, “With Liberty Goes Responsibility.” And Marty Golden, executive director of the Delaware State Board of Pharmacy, was president of NABP.
