For the past 45 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 and 2023 CAPCSD conference in Orlando were great successes, and the evaluations were outstanding.  The 2024 conference will be built on the success of the 2023 Orlando conference, 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.
