CANCELLED: 2020 Annual Conference

Due to the increasing health concerns and escalating developments that have occurred over the last several weeks regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, including the state of emergency in several states, the CACP Board of Directors has decided that the Annual Conference scheduled for June 28-30, 2020, will no longer take place.

As difficult as this decision is, the health and safety of our attendees, exhibitors, sponsors, presenters, volunteers, and staff remain our top priority. The CACP Board and staff thank all of you for understanding this difficult decision and we hope to see you at our next conference. If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to us at [email protected].
