The Rocky Mountain Region is among the fastest growing biotechnology/pharmaceutical communities in the nation. The chapter was established in 1996 to accelerate the awareness and visibility of the biopharmaceutical and medical device community through networking and educational opportunities.
With nearly 300 members and a diverse membership, the strengths of the chapter are visible with its large user involvement and the depth of technical programs provided. National speakers are invited often to share current trends and other relevant technical material to the chapter. The most prominent event is the annual vendor exhibition and workshop held annually in February. The demand of this well-attended event has increased exponentially over the last few years.
