     In the past, black pharmacists could not join the Virginia Pharmacists Association and, as a response, they founded the Old Dominion Pharmaceutical Association. Most members were store owners, and montly meetings were held on Sundays in Richmond, Petersburg, or South Hill. Members discussed issues affecting the profession of pharmacy, as well as new drugs and product updates. Up until the 1980s, the Old Dominion Pharmacy Association would hold banquets to honor its members with awards. In January 2019, the organization was restored as a new chapter of the National Pharmaceutical Association.
