Dear CCPA Purchasing Partners (CCPAPP) Members,

We have exciting news and updates to share with you in this edition of our quarterly newsletter! 
  • Limited Partner members who utilized one or more of CCPAPP's contracted vendors in 2014 should have received a distribution check and K-1 schedule in February or early March of this year. Both Partner and Associate members were mailed a report which reflects sales volume with each vendor. If you did not receive the mailing, or if you have any questions regarding the information, please contact us.
  • Continued partnerships with Sanofi Pasteur and MedImmune offer savings on vaccine for the upcoming 2015-2016 influenza season. The deadline to confirm your Sanofi Pasteur Fluzone reservations is Tuesday, March 31, 2015! Please read below for additional product, pricing and shipping information. Please also see below for information on recent vaccine price updates with Sanofi Pasteur and Merck as well as a new agreement with Pfizer.
  • Thank you to all members who utilize our vendors and help contribute to the success of our organization. Please be reminded of the great savings offered through Access, Forward Space (previously OEC Business Interiors), McKesson, and CDW, just four of CCPAPP's vendor partners who are featured below. Read more about these vendors and review CCPAPP's full listing of vendor partners on the Vendor Partner Listing page of our website.
We hope you continue to enjoy the many savings and benefits offered by our program. Please contact a member of our staff at any time with questions, comments or feedback regarding our organization!

Practice Management Resources 

Web Learning Modules: Best HR Practices for Your Practice  

Last year CCPAPP launched its HR learning module series for members, covering two very important topics: Why Your Company Should Have an Employee Handbook and Necessary Policies in an Employee Handbook. In February, CCPAPP launched the next two modules: Do You Have the Necessary Labor Law Posters? and Maintaining Personnel Files.

We have received great feedback so far from members, and we encourage anyone who has not yet participated to sign on today! The cost is free and the modules are available on demand. We have just posted two new modules: Background Checks - Should You Use Them? and Best Interviewing Practices.

We hope you are able to take advantage of this valuable resource! View Human Resources Learning Modules (login information required).
