The New Jersey Pharmaceutical Quality Control Association (NJPQCA) holds seven Monthly Luncheon Meetings with a topic of interest to the pharmaceutical industry. The meetings are usually on the third Tuesday of September, October, November, January, February, March, and April at the Galloping Hill Caterers in Union, NJ.
Please note that the NJPQCA Board has decided to hold our 2021-2022 meetings virtually until further notice due to the current pandemic situation, and the meeting time has been revised to 12noon-1:30PM. We will return to our in-person meetings when it is safe to do so. We hope that you and your family are well. Please stay safe during these challenging times.
The NJPQCA invites you to attend our Monthly Meetings. See the table below for the topics and speakers for 2021-2022. We are currently confirming the topics/speakers for our remaining meetings, and we will post them when they are confirmed.
Members and Non-members: Our next meeting will be Tuesday, April 26, 2022 from 12:00noon-1:30PM. This is our last meeting for the 2021-2022 season. You will need to register for the meeting in order to receive the Webex link, which will be provided a few days before the meeting.
