CAP Committee Applications: The College of American Pathologists (CAP) is accepting applications for 2023 committee appointments. With more than 60 committees, project teams, and member survey panels to apply for, the CAP has numerous opportunities for engaging and impacting the specialty of pathology.

The application link opened on January 10, 2022. All CAP Fellows and Junior members are welcome to apply. Those individuals who are not eligible for CAP membership (including PhDs, non-board-certified pathologists, and medical technologists) may also apply.

Final Board of Governors approval of committee appointments occurs in late summer. Governance staff notifies appointed applicants via email in early fall. Applicants not selected to serve on a council or committee will receive notification via email by the end of the calendar year.

The 2023 Committee Application closes on April 29, 2022.
