The National Conference of Pharmaceutical Organizations (NCPO) (formerly the National Drug Trade Conference) was born from a resolution adopted on August 22, 1912, by the Council of the American Pharmaceutical Association (APhA). The resolution proposed the holding of a conference to be attended by delegates of the then-existing national practice and drug manufacturing associations. The purpose of the conference was to consider aspects of legislation, both state and national, which related to the professional practice of pharmacy and to the production and distribution of drugs.
