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).
