Early Bird RM200 Discount EXTENDED for the 50th MPS AGM, Seminar and Dinner to 30 APRIL 2017
We have received numerous requests from members to extend the deadline for the RM200 early bird discount.
MPS hears you loud and clear. The deadline has been extended to 30 April 2017
This is a once in a lifetime 50th Anniversary program and we would want to give as much opportunity as possible for participation. We have received request to extend to many reasons like waiting for Head of Department approval, arrangement of locum, trying to get together a group of classmates, time require to realise of funds approval - all are valid reasons to cause a delay in the registration.

CORPORATISED STRUCTURE FOR PHARMACIES?
Like it or not pharmacies in Malaysia and I believe elsewhere are being managed under corporatised structure for economic of scale, organised management and efficiency. IPs have reasons to be concerned with such inevitable development and should organise themselves as such to benefit from such structure and remain independent to serve the people on a personal basis closer to the community as what pharmacists are trained to do. They must not feel intimidated by such announcement as others have done but failed to take off as planned due to complexity of managing a successful profitable pharmacy.
See the article for more information: http://www.thestar.com.my/business/business-news/2017/04/17/tieup-with-angkasa-to-boost-bioalphas-domestic-earnings/
But we have to admit managing an IP is hardwork and long hours but has the invaluable advantage of being own boss, able to make fast independent decision and be rewarded for personal effort. Days are over of guaranteed success if you don't personally manage your pharmacy professionally as with any business today, even a clinic. Important thing is keep abreast with latest information, development and sharing information between colleagues, working together.
Many may feel participating in MPS activities is costly but it provides good platform and opportunity to reach out to professional colleagues. Do join in the MPS 50th Anniversary Seminar and Celebration. It is an investment for your profession's future as the Society gets stronger support and attracts willing people coming forward to provide broader leadership at all levels, in Area Committees, working together reaching out to communities who will further appreciate pharmacists and create demand that is large enough for everyone to share and benefit. Pharmacy is not a lone business/practice but an important healthcare institution that will always be in demand but only for those who actively engage in and not for those doing it just because you are a pharmacist.
Success is pharmacist + active management!
Hope to see more joining in the greatest show that MPS ever held but it can only be successful if pharmacists themselves want to be visible and showcase our pride and unity. Sadly, to date we have less than 300 registered for the seminar and dinner out of 10,000 registered pharmacists in the country for such an exclusive event that so many including from Area Committees have spent time, enthusiasm and effort organising but only to see lukewarm respond so far. Hopefully typical of Malaysians, more will enrol in the coming weeks. You will not regret participating as there are many special events in store for you. Visit MPS website for more info.
Look out for special offer till month end. Do register early to facilitate management. The profession cannot thrive by itself unless pharmacists are determined to make it into a great profession that we all can feel proud of. Let us worked hard to protect our franchise which no one can practice except we as pharmacists!
Cheers to all, Happy 50th Anniversary to MPS.
