CAPA would like to thank and acknowledge the following partners for their support.
CAPA’s partners are defined as organizations who support the advancement of the Physician Assistant profession and whose services are exchanged in-kind. Some of CAPA’s partners may provide discounts to our members on services such as educational resources, travel or insurance and in return, CAPA will market these services to the membership in the form of an agreed upon communication. This could include email blasts, information included in the monthly newsletter, posting content on the CAPA website and sending out promotional materials on behalf of CAPA.
A partner can also be an organization whose mandate falls in line with that of CAPA’s. In these instances a tangible exchange of services may not take place however each organization provides the other with the intangible benefit of showing support by way of generating exposure for each other.
