Here is the content of the Statement of Unity:

"As a historic event, selective key leaders of AAPT, NPTA and PTEC met for the first time to establish a united voice for pharmacy technicians.

We respect the history and culture of our respective organizations.

We commit to proactively work together to address technician issues, such as member’s needs, education (both initial and continuing), roles and responsibilities, certification, regulations and their impact on patient care.

We plan to continue our association together on an international, as well as domestic, scope in the united belief in the value of pharmacy technicians in the practice of pharmacy."
