Product Divisions

At the heart of HCPA is its Division Programs. Each of our seven divisions covers a category or issue of importance to the membership.

Directed by volunteer leadership from our member companies, these divisions address emerging issues, help shape policy positions, and advise on the latest scientific and regulatory developments affecting their specific categories. They also develop research and work collaboratively with partners on issues of common interest. These Divisions meet in-person multiple times a year and ensure energetic collaboration among members.

This flexible structure is unique among associations and gives everyone a seat at the table while allowing the association to effectively address a wide range of issues across the industry.
