You've got professional liability insurance. Property and casualty, too. Though the cost seems to go up and up, you pay your health insurance premium every month.
But have you paid your political insurance premium?
An investment in NCPA's Political Action Committee is political insurance for your independent pharmacy business. For community pharmacy to really make its voice heard in Washington, NCPA PAC needs your support now more than ever.
In short, the NCPA PAC works to elect candidates who think like you do about your pharmacy business and the patients you serve.
We can only achieve our political goals with your support. Invest $50 or $100 a month. Think of it as taking your business out to dinner. Added together with your fellow pharmacists' investments, your monthly investment can help make us one of the most powerful political organizations on Capitol Hill.
"Get into politics or get out of pharmacy" – That's what they say. Don't make the mistake of thinking that someone else will make the investment for you.
