messickWelcome to the updated CAPCSD Website!

The newly organized pathways allow easy access and quick navigation to CAPCSD resources.  We now have the ability to complete membership renewal, conference registration, and our CAPCSD surveys through  our website.  It will also serve as the pathway for students to access the CSDCAS portal.  Special thanks to Scott Hall of our Management Service for creating the website and to the CAPCSD Website Committee who gave time and energy to this project:  Martin Fisher, Chuck Carlin, Karen Stein and Mary Hardin-Jones (Monitoring Officer).  So enjoy exploring the site – we want it to be a resource for all CAPCSD members.

          — Cheryl Messick, President CAPCSD
