2022 Fall House of Delegates Meeting

Make An Impact

Oct 8, 2022
Hybrid Meeting, In-Person Location:
Hyatt Regency New Orleans, New Orleans, LA

Get involved with what matters most to you as both a pathologist and a member of the CAP. The House of Delegates meeting is an ideal forum for you to engage with CAP leadership, and a chance for CAP leadership to gain your insights on the needs of pathologists.

Connect and engage with peers and CAP leaders alike; to listen and be heard. This meeting is an occasion for learning and disseminating information on current issues that impact pathologists, for influencing and advocating on behalf of pathologists, and—perhaps most importantly—your opportunity to make an impact of the future of pathology.

So, join us in New Orleans for the Fall HOD meeting or virtually from the convenience of your home office.
