Hal Wand, MBA, RPh, presented the President’s Address during the 113th Annual Meeting:

“Good afternoon. It has been an exciting year serving as the president of National Association of Boards of Pharmacy® (NABP®). And as this year’s theme instructs, I have been able to Explore, Discover, and Act as I’ve traveled to the district meetings and various other meetings. In these travels, NABP has been my passport allowing me to interact with the membership.

“My NABP passport gave me the opportunity to meet more new people, hear your experiences and concerns, and bring back different perspectives to the Executive Committee. And just as I found value in NABP as a passport to interaction with members, I invite all of you to consider the ways in which NABP is your passport to services, programs, and resources that support your efforts to protect the public health.

Those of you who attended last year’s meeting may remember hearing about my initiative regarding the membership survey. And many of you here today may have even received and taken that survey. The survey not only asked what programs you utilize, but also sought feedback on your satisfaction levels and if our services provide value to you. We have spent months looking at the results and combing through the open-ended responses of executive officers, board members, and board staff.”
