CPNP 2021 takes networking to new levels with opportunities daily to participate in a range of unique interactions with other attendees. Choose based on your availability, your preferred type of networking, and your practice-based interests. Put in the time to expand your network of colleagues improve your practice.

Kick-Off Happy Hour

Kick off Virtual CPNP 2021 by reconnecting with your peers and former colleagues! Although we're meeting virtually this year, we invite you to set aside 90 minutes on Friday, April 16 to reconnect with your CPNP family.

Idea Exchanges

Monday-Friday: 12:00 PM - 1:15 PM CDT

Each day, a CPNP Community presents an Idea Exchange as a concurrent session on pressing issues in practice. These sessions allow for peer-to-peer collaboration and information sharing between attendees who share a special interest or practice setting and involve exchange and dialogue on issues of common interest. Topics will be announced in March.

Meetups

Monday-Friday: 3:00 PM - 10:00 PM (User-Scheduled) CDT

Although scheduled networking helps you connect with other attendees around common issues and practice settings, you also need to connect with your friends. Use our Meetups feature to schedule a time to connect online during CPNP 2021 based on your RPD, a circle of friends, a geographic connection, or any other common bond that brings you together. Let us help you Meetup in April!

Networking Hour

Monday-Friday: 3:00 PM - 3:45 PM CDT

Track 1: Practice Setting Breakouts

Trainees are encouraged to join roundtable discussions around core practice settings like inpatient, amcare, research, industry, and more. We have invited 20+ senior members to join each roundtable session, and participants will be randomly assigned to Zoom breakout rooms with those members to ask questions and discuss challenges and opportunities in the various career paths.

Track 2: Daily Debriefs

Join a discussion with 10-15 other attendees about your key insights of the day! These sessions will be facilitated by CPNP members who have been trained to help you make new connections and gain new insights during these daily debrief sessions. A big thanks to the CPNP Foundation for supporting the facilitation training workshop that made these discussions possible. Attendance is limited to the first 250!

Track 3: Speed Networking

If your objective is simply to meet new people, or if you were running late to the other options, speed networking might be right for you. Similar to speed dating, you will be paired with a random attendee for 5 minutes, then you will be paired with another random attendee for the next 5 minutes, and so on. Join all week to meet about 40 new people and learn about their experience!

Engagement Hour

Poster Sessions

Monday-Tuesday: 3:45 PM - 5:00 PM CDT

Review and bookmark posters of interest before the meeting starts – or even pose tentative questions. Then, spend Monday and Tuesday chatting with poster presenters about psychiatric pharmacy research being conducted across the country. This year, our popular poster sessions will be enhanced with video summaries provided by many of the poster presenters.

CPNP Forum on Our Future

Wednesday-Friday: 3:45 PM - 5:00 PM CDT

So much is happening that our forum is being spread out over 3 nights! Join us to recognize the Judith J. Saklad Memorial Award Winner, to celebrate our research and practice award winners, to discuss accomplishments from this past year, and to provide feedback on our new draft strategic plan! More detail will be provided in March.

Watch Parties

Monday-Friday: 7:30 AM - 8:45 AM; 5:00 PM - 6:15 PM CDT

It can be hard to make time for self-study sessions. However, you can join other attendees in watching the on-demand sessions at the same time so that you can chat and discuss the sessions. In the case of the Recert Watch Parties, the speakers will be available in the chat room to respond to your questions and comments and to make them eligible for Live ACPE credit! Discuss issues that arise and make new connections while filling your daily schedule with these Watch Parties!

CPNP Foundation Trivia Nights

Monday-Thursday: 7:15 PM - 8:30 PM CDT

No work allowed! As the CE winds down on the West Coast, it is time for attendees to have a little fun. Create or join a trivia team to Zoom, network, chat, and have a little fun answering questions that have absolutely nothing to do with psychiatric pharmacy!

The CPNP Foundation is supporting CPNP 2021 through student attendance, facilitation training (for the Daily Debrief), and Trivia Nights. Help support the CPNP Foundation through a goodwill donation.
