Annual Conference

The CAPCSD annual conference is held in various cities across the US every spring.  Over the past 40 years, it has gained the reputation for being the leading site for collaborating, connecting and exploring issues in our field for current and future administrators in Speech and Hearing Departments across the nation.  The conference, based heavily on attendee feedback, is designed to offer sessions to inform administrators on the hot topics, whether you are a Dean, Chair, Program Director or Clinic Director.  Every year, we are pleased to offer astounding invited sessions from the leaders of the field.  In addition, the conference receives well over a hundred call-for-papers proposals, which adds to the diversity and dynamic of the available talks.  The conference lay out is also arranged to create a fun and social environment, where attendees can enjoy time to network with colleagues.
