USP's 2020 Convention will take place during a milestone year, our 200th anniversary. Join us in May 3-6, 2020 to celebrate the legacy of trust we've built together and the continued work we're doing to positively impact lives now and into the future.
On May 3-6, more than 500 organizations from across the healthcare community will come together to launch the next 200 years of USP’s work to help build trust in medicine. Convention Members like you are critical to the impact we create together. You share your organizational perspective, contribute your expertise and experiences, and bring your passion and commitment.
The USP Convention is a unique and powerful network of Member Organizations from across the healthcare continuum, uniting to advance access to quality medicines. The 2020 Meeting of the USP Convention will be a pivotal moment – where we’ll honor our past accomplishments and look to the future, challenging ourselves to do even more to protect patient safety.
In addition to helping to shape USP’s impact through governance responsibilities such as electing the new Board of Trustees and Council of Experts, adopting the Resolutions for the next five-year cycle, and amending the USP Bylaws, Convention Delegates will participate in dynamic programming throughout the event. You’ll collaborate on shared priorities, hear from visionary speakers, and help celebrate USP’s anniversary and our shared accomplishments. Watch for exciting programming announcements over the coming months.

As our science and technology have progressed over the past five years, the 2020 meeting will provide the most up-to-date information, data, and real-time experiences. It also offers an opportunity to reconnect with existing colleagues and be introduced to new ones.
