Annual Convention

sdpha 136th Annual Convention

It's now been two long years since SDPhA has gathered in person for the annual meeting and convention, and we're banking on 2022 to get our Game On! We hope all you Jackrabbits (we're accepting others as well) can join us in Brookings, SD - the home of South Dakota State University for a great weekend of learning, fellowship, fun and football!

Early bird registration is now open. The schedule isn't completely set yet - but it's jam-packed this year. We've waited a long time to be able to gather again in person - we're going to do it right!

Thursday night will include a reception with SDSU for those picking up registration.  

Saturday - plan to stick around! We're working on a block of football tickets, so stay tuned!

Meeting Venue: Swiftel Center

Convention Hotel: Hampton Inn and Suites (Ask for the SD Pharmacists block)
