Member Events at CAP19

CAP19 is an opportunity for members to connect, network, and celebrate. Here are key events you should plan to attend.

Saturday, September 21

7:00 AM-3:30 PM

Residents Forum and House of Delegates Fall Meeting​

Includes joint breakfast and lunch with a featured guest speaker.

CAP Junior Members convene for a full day to explore all those tricky topics they don’t teach in medical school:

  • Emerging technology and digital pathology
  • Changes in the health care landscape
  • Professional etiquette

Stay for career-building resources at the Residents Forum/New in Practice Lounge:

  • Free consults for writing medical research grants.
  • Medical librarians who’ll provide a day of free consulting on your CV and research proposals.
  • A VIP networking reception that connects you with the specialty’s leaders, and
  • The Career Fair, back by popular demand

The House of Delegates (HOD) meeting isn’t limited to elected delegates—all CAP Fellows can attend. The HOD is the voice of the membership; meeting attendees connect with leaders and shape the specialty’s position on key issues. Our Fall meeting will tackle tough topics including how to strengthen the specialty at state and local levels. You’ll also gain a good overview of the CAP’s advocacy activities and a new understanding of select hot topics.

3:45 PM-4:45 PM

Meeting of the Membership and Presidential Inauguration

All members are invited to this opening session where colleagues connect, network, and learn the latest from CAP leadership. Hear the CEO’s perspective on CAP performance, gain a progress report from the CAP President, and learn which priorities will top the CAP agenda as our President-Elect is inaugurated to a two-year term. Newly elected Governors to the CAP Board will also be sworn in.
