The Maryland Association of Chain Drug Stores (MACDS) represents the interests of the chain pharmacy industry in Maryland. MACDS came under the umbrella of the Maryland Retailers Association (MRA) in 2017. On behalf of MACDS, MRA attends monthly meetings of the Maryland Board of Pharmacy and the Maryland Pharmacy Coalition. MACDS also works closely with the Maryland Pharmacists Association and independent pharmacies in the state.
The partnership between MACDS and MRA provides MACDS members with lobbying services specific to the pharmaceutical industry and pharmacists’ interests and general MRA membership information.
