Annual Conference


Good things are happening in 2021 !

The Conference Planning Committee and Board of Directors are excited to announce plans for a virtual CAPCSD Annual Conference, Thursday, April 8 – Saturday, April 10, 2021.  At CAPCSD, we are committed to carrying out our mission to promote quality, accessibility and innovation in Communication Sciences and Disorders in higher education.

The theme for the 41st annual conference is Beyond Innovation: Challenge to Change.  It will offer sessions led by experts on topics of interest to you: telepractice/telesupervision, simulations, inclusion, diversity and equality, and clinical education. We will have the features you value: engaging presenters, keynote sessions, break outs, and exhibitors.  New to this conference is a virtual poster session.

While we all look forward to being together and networking again in the future, we are seizing this opportunity to stay connected while advancing our mission and supporting our programs.
