The California Pharmacists Association (CPhA) was founded in 1869 and is the largest state association representing pharmacists. CPhA represents pharmacists, technicians, and student pharmacists from all practice settings. These practice settings include community pharmacy (both independent owners and employees working in chain drug stores), hospitals & health-systems, and specialty practices such as compounding, managed care, and long term care. The CPhA mission is to advance the practice of pharmacy for the promotion of health.

CPhA is led by dedicated pharmacists that serve as members of the Board of Trustees who volunteer their time to advancing the profession. CPhA professional staff manage the day-to-day affairs of the organization and are available to assist members who have questions or concerns.
