PMCQ is an acronym for the Pharmaceutical Marketing Club of Quebec and we - the more than 400 members of PMCQ - are in one way or another, all connected to the pharmaceutical/biotech industry. PMCQ members come from all walks of industry life including: strategic planning, product management, external affairs, R&D, medical publishing, advertising, media, CME, human resources, market research, corporate communications and more!
In essence, PMCQ brings pertinent business issues, trends, policies and practices into sharper focus for its members. We accomplish this by hosting monthly guest speaker forums featuring topics as varied as: DTC advertising, patient compliance, the Internet, stock market investing, population demographics and public policy. And because our members believe strongly in the value of professional networking, PMCQ's educational mandate is enriched by social and charitable activities. PMCQ is a not-for-profit organization. Annual membership fees cover operating costs and member services such as the member-roster and the club newsletter, Pharmindex.
The PMCQ Board is staffed by VOLUNTEERS. People in these positions change from year to year, therefore, structure provides a framework for operating continuity. Some companies who have been represented on the Board in recent years include: Abbott, Aventis-Sanofi, Axcan, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Cossette, Data Ad, Merck, Pfizer, Pharmascience, Reach Media Sales, Schering, STA Communications, and others. Core positions on the Board include: President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, a group of Directors and the Past-President. If you're interested in volunteering your help or your company's services, we'd love to hear about it! Every PMCQ sub-committee (such as the Membership Committee, the Speakers Committee, the Ball Committee) needs helping hands.
