Texas Federation of Drug Stores

Mission:
The mission of The Texas Federation of Drug Stores (TFDS) is to promote and extend the use and sale of products sold and dispensed in retail drug stores in the State of Texas; improve relations with suppliers, government, consumers, news media, educators and educational institutions and other enterprises and professions concerned with the delivery of healthcare; and to establish and maintain business practices of the highest standards 

Who we are: 
The Federation is a dues-paying member of the Texas Retailers Association. The Federation has its own Board of Directors and Bylaws. The Federation’s activity is focused on pharmacy-specific legislative and regulatory issues, including: the administration of state and federal drug programs (i.e. Medicaid, Medicare, CHIP, workers’ compensation); Texas State Board of Pharmacy activities; scope of practice issues; and professional practice issues (i.e. conscientious objection and workforce issues). The organization is a member of the Texas Pharmacy Congress and Texas Pharmacy Practice Coalition. Through these organizations, the Federation enjoys a close working relationship with the Texas Pharmacy Association, Texas Society of Health-System Pharmacists, Texas State Board of Pharmacy, Texas Medicaid Vendor Drug Program, and all of the colleges and schools of pharmacy in Texas. The Federation meets on a quarterly basis and communicates regularly through email, except during the regular legislative session (January to May of even-numbered years), when they hold weekly conference calls that are generously funded by the National Association of Chain Drug Stores (NACDS).
