Call for Resolutions

March 29, 2022 - CAPCSD announces the results of the membership vote on the proposed Resolution on Non-Discrimination and CAA Accreditation Standards.

A majority of the member programs that voted were in favor of the resolution, thereby ratifying the resolution. The Board of Directors will carry out the actions as stated in the resolution as we continue to support, promote, and advance higher education programs in Communication Sciences and Disorders.

The Board of Directors gathers input on issues of importance to the membership of CAPCSD. If you, individually or in concert with colleagues, have ideas or issues that you believe the Board of Directors should address, please formulate and submit a resolution for consideration. Resolutions may be submitted by the Board of Directors, standing committees, working groups, or individual representatives of member institutions.

Process

  • Proposed resolutions received by the Executive Director will be presented to the Board of Directors for a vote.
  • If 1/3 of the Board of Directors support the resolution, a ballot is sent to program representatives for a vote (one vote per program).
  • If the resolution passes, it will be acted on by the Board of Directors.
