Colleen Lindholz President, Kroger Health, The Kroger Co. and NACDS Chair

The NACDS Annual Meeting presents a special and unique opportunity for our industry to return to meeting with each other to grow our companies collaborations and partnerships. I look forward to being together and seeing each of you at this important industry gathering.

Brian Nightengale, RPh, PhD President, Good Neighbor Pharmacy and NACDS Vice Chair

To me, the NACDS Annual meeting is a “must attend” event. Engaging with peer leaders in the industry in such an intimate and relaxing environment is certainly a big plus. But on top of that, the ability to meet with key supplier partners in meaningful top to top conversations is incredibly valuable.

Mark Deuschle President, Navajo Incorporated

The NACDS Annual event is the single most productive and effective event we participate in each year. Executives from both retailers and suppliers are committed to investing meaningful time together to identify new opportunities, confirm results of current programs and develop new strategies to grow their respective businesses. NACDS Annual is a must attend event.

Rick Brindle VP, Industry Development, Mondelez International

The 2022 Annual Meeting will provide the perfect collaborative environment for transformative growth and a much needed Homecoming for our industry.
