For more than 60 years, the Parenteral Drug Association (PDA), a professional society headquartered in the Washington, D.C., area, has pioneered in providing research toward science, technology, and education for over 10,000 pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical community members. Each year PDA successfully coordinates several large-scale conferences while simultaneously managing multiple smaller pharmaceutical industry special interest group meetings that occur in conjunction with their large events.
“The challenge that we were facing was that we hold interest group meetings on about 24 different industry topics for the pharmaceutical industry at our conferences. At the largest conferences, we’ll usually have between 600 and 800 people in attendance. After the conference was finished, we would have to do data entry of between 1,200 and 1,400 people onto committees to try to keep track of who is in which group,” shares Jonathan Hill, Volunteer Coordinator at PDA.
