SCPhA Today
In the more recent past, the Association has played a significant part in the role of continuing education requirements for pharmacists. As the science of pharmacy became more sophisticated, the Association saw the importance of insuring that pharmacists stay abreast of the rapidly changing information. SCPhA is an Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) approved provider for continuing education. The Association constantly strives to offer readily available and quality education services to South Carolina pharmacists.

SCPhA's legislative influence has gained strength in recent years. Through tremendous work of SCPhA's Legislative Network, H3631, "Rx Freedom of Access" was passed by the SC General Assembly and signed into state law in May 1994. The Association led the effort for a complete revision of the Pharmacy Practice Act, which was signed into law in June of 1998.

SCPhA has grown from its original 50 male members and no staff to more than 2,000 male and female pharmacy professionals and a full-time staff of 7 professionals. These members and staff continue to work toward positive changes that sustain the profession of pharmacy.
