South Atlantic Chapter

Education Committee

The Education Committee is a team of individuals from a broad range of Life Sciences industry segments, whose goals are the sharing of industry knowledge, standards, and best practices with our Membership.

We offer educational topics that relate to one of the seven technical knowledge elements for the CPIP (Certified Pharmaceutical Industry Professional) Credential.  Those seven elements are: Product Development, Facilities and Equipment, Information Systems, Supply Chain Management, Production Systems, Regulatory Compliance (includes drugs, environmental, health and safety) and Quality Systems.  ISPE-CASA also offers a Study Group for those interested in the CPIP.  To learn more about CPIP visit

The Hosts, Presenters or Panel members in all cases are routinely "Subject Matter Experts" who bring a wealth of knowledge. During or after the event, these professionals are open to questions.  Each event is coupled with a networking reception to allow all attendees to converse and gain more contacts.

The Committee also works to schedule local plant tours to for our members.  The Committee helps with logistics of planning the tours and determining which plants would be of interest to the members.  In the past we have toured Eisai, Grifols, Biogen Idec, and various other manufacturing sites in the area.

Above all, the Committee is dedicated to providing Educational content to our Members. We are always interested in talking with potential volunteers who feel they could bring something to this organization.


Thank you to our Education Partners!
