CAPCSD’s 44th Annual Conference is themed Jazz it Up: Ascending to New Heights and it will be held in New Orleans, Louisiana, at the New Orleans Marriott.

For the past 45 years, our conference has been held in a variety of cities across the United States. It has a reputation for being a leading conference in speech-language pathology and audiology education. Faculty and staff in speech and hearing departments throughout the nation and abroad benefit from the opportunity to collaborate, connect, explore, and learn together about issues unique to our discipline.

The 2024 conference will build on the huge success of the 2023 conference in Orlando, FL, and use your feedback to create a vibrant, engaging event where you can learn and exchange ideas with your colleagues.
