Our Club

PMCQ is an acronym for the Pharmaceutical Marketing Club of Quebec and we – the more than 500 members of PMCQ – are in one way or another, all connected to the pharmaceutical/biotech industry. PMCQ members come from all walks of industry life including: strategic planning, product management, external affairs, R&D, medical publishing, advertising, media, CME, human resources, market research, corporate communications and more!

The PMCQ’s mission is to facilitate lifelong learning, career development and networking for Pharma professionals. In essence, PMCQ brings pertinent business issues, trends, policies and practices into sharper focus for its members. We accomplish this by hosting monthly guest speaker forums featuring topics as varied as: DTC advertising, patient compliance, stock market investing, population demographics and public policy. Because our members believe strongly in the value of professional networking, PMCQ’s educational mandate is enriched by social and charitable activities. PMCQ is a not-for-profit organization.

The PMCQ Board is staffed by VOLUNTEERS. People in these positions change from year to year, therefore, structure provides a framework for operating continuity. Pharmaceutical companies, various agencies and industry suppliers have been represented on the Board in recent years. Core positions on the Board include: President, Vice Presidents, Secretary, Treasurer, a group of Directors and the Past-President. If you’re interested in volunteering your help or your company’s services, we’d love to hear about it! Every PMCQ sub-committee needs helping hands.

President's Message

Julie-Arel-156x207

Winston Churchill once said, “never let a good crisis go to waste”.

That is exactly what we’re trying to do at the PMCQ. After talking about it for years, the global COVID-19 crisis gave us the push we needed to host our very first virtual events at the end of our 2019-2020 PMCQ season.

We recently invested in an event platform to help manage both virtual and live events and provide you, our members, with exceptional event experiences and networking possibilities.

We plan to deploy the new platform later this year. Our goal is to make it seamless for you to engage with us and with one another before, during, and after virtual and live events. Our new platform will offer features such as one-on-one messaging, live polling, session registration and better overall audience interaction for both virtual and live events.

Between this new platform and our awesome curriculum, this season promises to be a year of reinvention.

We look forward to seeing you – live or virtually – at this season’s events!
