CAPA Membership

PAs have a responsibility to direct the progress of their profession. CAPA is well-positioned to move California PAs to Optimal Team Practice (OTP). OTP is the future of the PA profession and OTP is only possible through the support of CAPA members. Be a member, stay a member and join your colleagues in one of the most important actions our profession has ever undertaken.

We invite you to take a peek at the timeline presented at the 2016 CAPA Conference as we celebrated CAPA’s 40th Anniversary. This timeline only allows space for a few, key highlights from each year. There is so much more CAPA has done and continues to do every day and year. The support of CAPA members is integral as we bring bold, new proposals to modernize PA practice in California.

OTP will be the biggest, most significant proposal in PA history. Truly, that isn’t an overstatement. I have been doing this for over 25 years, so I know whence I speak. This is BIG!

I would encourage all of us to take the necessary steps to promote OTP which will create the kind of change that will ultimately result in PAs being able to do what we are capable of. To remain competitive in the job market, we need to ensure we are on a level playing field with nurse practitioners with regard to practice guidelines and regulations.
