The Voice of the Membership
The House of Delegates (HOD) represents the voice of CAP membership and is a gateway to leadership. The HOD ensures that CAP policies and initiatives meet the needs of the members we represent. Our strategy is to:
- Articulate to the Board of Governors what the HOD believes are needs of our members
- Monitor the effectiveness of the CAP to meet these needs
- Provide feedback and progress back to our constituents
James E. Richard, DO, FCAP, speaker of the House of Delegates, explains how the HOD elevates member concerns and spurs action on critical issues facing pathologists and the future of the specialty.
The House of Delegates Steering Committee acts as an executive committee and conducts business during the interval between HOD meetings. See the current members of the Steering Committee.
If you are a CAP fellow and are interested in being a member of the House of Delegates, or you are already a delegate, familiarize yourself with leadership opportunities, orientation materials and other helpful information to start your delegate journey.
