ent and consumer organizations—to discuss the issues of quality of health care and the quality of pharmaceuticals.” (Click here to hear more from Dr. Bravo.)

One significant new addition to the 2010 Convention will be the inclusion of many international observers, underscoring the extent to which the drug and food industries—and USP itself—have become truly global. Duane Kirking, Ph.D., chair of USP’s Board of Trustees, commented, “The largest impact on USP [in the past five years has been the internationalization of drugs… not only in their manufacture but in research and development. [This has resulted in the need to ensure consistent quality standards worldwide.” (Click here to hear more from Dr. Kirking.) While observers are not voting members of the Convention, they contribute to policy discussions and reflect USP’s commitment to seek the perspectives of all those affected by its standards.

In other Convention activities, a new Board of Trustees will be elected, as will a new Council of Experts—the chairs of the volunteer Expert Committees who, in conjunction with USP staff, create and revise USP standards. Resolutions will be debated and adopted, and important changes to USP bylaws are anticipated. To learn more about the Convention or to register, go to http://www.usp.org/meetings/convention/ .
