Want to have your voice heard behind the scenes?
Have you ever wondered how so much gets done by so few people?

Each Committee meets, on average, 4 times a year.
Education Committee - to ensure education and clinical experience meet or exceed the CPCA criteria;
Executive Committee - a standing committee that often acts as a steering committee for the full board;
Governance Committee - to ensure that the CPCA is compliant with all legal and financial laws, that it abides by all the Bylaws and Organizational Policies, and that the Board is functioning appropriately and efficiently.  There are 2 Project Committee opportunities also available - Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice.
Marketing Committee - to promote the CPCA for employment opportunities and for appropriate remuneration for services provided;
Nominations Committee - to review and vet all potential nominees for elected positions and to superintend the nominee and election process;
Social Media Committee - to propose and implement strategies for the expansion of social media platforms;
