Annual Conference


CAPCSD recognizes that the locations of conferences may pose concerns for some of our members. We further recognize that we have member programs in states with laws that may make members feel unsafe and vulnerable. CAPCSD contracts with conference location sites many years in advance and considers many factors when making a site selection. CAPCSD is committed to supporting all members, wherever they may reside, and making our stance against discrimination known. The CAPCSD Board will continue to communicate our stance against discrimination to convention visitors’ bureaus as we engage in our conference planning.

For the past 44 years, our conference has been held in a variety of cities across the United States. It has a reputation for being a leading conference in speech-language pathology and audiology education. Faculty and staff in speech and hearing departments throughout the nation and abroad benefit from the opportunity to collaborate, connect, explore, and learn together about issues unique to our discipline.

The 2022 CAPCSD conference in Portland was a great success, and the evaluations were outstanding.  The 2023 conference will build on the success in Portland, using your feedback to create a vibrant, engaging event where you can learn and exchange ideas with your colleagues.

We also look forward to seeing our friends - the sponsors and exhibitors in this face-to-face environment.
