2018 CAPA-CT Annual Conference Postponed

2018 CAPA-CT Annual Conference Postponed
At the last CAPA-CT Board meeting held on Oct. 14, the board members have voted to postpone this year’s annual conference to next year. One of the reasons is because of the CAST-USA Annual Convention held at Yale on Oct. 13-14, we supported the meeting and our professors attended the meeting as well. Both Dr. Xiusheng Yang and Dr. Richard Yang, President and Vice-President of CAPA-CT participated in and contributed to the conference on our behalf.
The Board Members will meet again before Thanksgiving as a retreat to discuss the objectives of CAPA-CT and sustainable ways to achieve those objectives.
