Membership fee increase for Resident Associates:

Over the past years, the CAP-ACP has worked to increase benefits to its membership, including for resident members. Residents receive all the same benefits as Pathologists' Assistants and Ordinary members.  However, the $38 membership does not cover any of the costs associated with those benefits and it requires ordinary members and Pathologist Assistants to subsidize these benefits with their annual dues payments.  Given that resident membership fees have not increased in the past 15 years and that PA membership is more expensive than resident membership, the CAP-ACP Board of directors is proposing a fee increase to bring more balance to the membership fees between categories.  The proposed increase is of $62, bringing the resident membership fee to $100 and in line with the PA membership fee.  This increase -- the first in the past 15 years -- will not only ensure equity of the membership fee schedule, but it will help sustain and advance the resident-focused initiatives the CAP-ACP offers residents, like the Resident Review Course.
