CAP House of Delegates: Florida seats open!

The CAP HOD acts as the voice of the membership of the CAP, articulating to the Board of Governors (BOG) the needs of constituents and articulating to constituents what the CAP is doing to meet those needs. Delegates and Alternate Delegates play a vital role in this process and the CAP HOD is an excellent path to leadership within the CAP. A new apportionment for the College of American Pathologists (CAP) House of Delegates (HOD) members and Florida means the Florida Delegation has twelve more seats. We plan to fill them all! If you are interested or have any suggestions of FSP/CAP members who you think will be good candidates, please contact House of Delegates Florida Chair, Marilyn M. Bui, MD, PhD, FCAP
