The Continuing Education Committee (CEC) is the “educational arm” of NCAPA and is responsible for the development and implementation of all NCAPA CME activities, including two annual conferences, regional workshops, and online education. The committee consists of three panels, the Conference Management Panel (CMP), the Professional Development Review Panel (PDRP), and the Educational Development Panel (EDP). Details regarding each panel can be found by clicking the links below:
Committee Roles and Expectations
The committee consists of a Chair and 12-20 members who all serve on one or more panels. The CEC committee, as a whole, does not hold meetings but instead, each panel creates their own process for meetings and expectations for their members.
The Continuing Education Committee Chair is expected to attend all NCAPA board of directors meetings (4-5 times annually) and works directly with the NCAPA Director of Conferences and CME to assist with the annual budgeting process and to ensure educational activities are executed smoothly and with attendee satisfaction.
