CAPA’S 37TH ANNUAL CONFERENCE

The CAPA Conference…

Palm Springs is the backdrop. The totally renovated

Renaissance Palm Springs and beautiful Palm Springs

Convention Center is the venue. It becomes ours for 4

days. PAs fill the entire hotel and the Renaissance quickly

becomes PA Central. There is never a dull moment. We

learn together, we eat together and we play and party

together. We share the California PA experience and it is a

great one.

At CAPA, we are all about PAs and all about providing you

with the most valuable and unique learning experience.

We have a program filled with topics targeted to PAs and

presented by dynamic speakers. More than that, the CAPA

Conference is an incredible experience in and of itself.

Each of you bring something special to the conference.

And, this year, we hope you will each share what is trending

in your life by emailing us a photo for us to share on the big

screens in the ballroom at the conference. See page 4 for

complete details.

There is a reason we return to the Renaissance Palm

Springs (formerly the Wyndham) and Palm Springs

Convention Center year after year. It is absolutely the

best place to hold your conference. The hotel staff and

management know and love us. It is our home away from

home. People try to describe the “feel” of the CAPA

Conference and find it hard to describe in words. It is just

very cool!!

You all make it cool and we at CAPA have a great time

creating events and opportunities so you have the ultimate

PA experience while learning a lot, hanging out with friends

and colleagues and enjoying beautiful Palm Springs. It

doesn’t get much better than that.

Celebrating With Friends,

Colleagues and Family

There is no better setting than fantastic Palm Springs.

No better venue than the beautiful Renaissance Palm

Springs and Palm Springs Convention Center. And, no

better feeling than being “back home” at our home away

from home where the CAPA Conference experience is

born each year. You’ve gotta love it! And, you can’t beat

the special CAPA group rates during Palm Springs’ peak

season. The weather is perfect. There is a spectacular

pool at the Renaissance Palm Springs perfect for children

and adults to gather and play (they have added a sandbox

next to the kiddie pool). Palm Springs is world famous as

“America’s Premier Desert Resort.” It is home to many

popular desert attractions including the Palm Springs

Aerial Tramway and Oasis Waterpark. Fine dining (the

city boasts over 400 restaurants), shopping and the

weekly, Thursday evening, Villagefest are magnets for

travelers. The Palm Springs Desert Museum is a showcase

of Western and contemporary art, natural science and

performing arts in the Annenberg Theater. The Palm

Springs Air Museum highlights flying aircraft from World

War II. The Indian Canyons, owned and operated by

the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians, is North

America’s largest palm oasis. At the Spa Hotel, within

walking distance of the Renaissance, you can enjoy Indian

Gaming. There are unlimited golfing opportunities. Bring

the family or have a romantic weekend for the two of

you. Or, come alone and simply enjoy the company of

your PA colleagues. For more information please visit

www.palmspringsoasis.com, www.palmspringslife.com or

www.palmsprings.com.

SPECIAL EVENTS

Friday Evening at the CAPA Conference

9:00 P.M.

The Dance and

American PA Idol Competition

The nightclubs of Palm

Springs can’t compete

with the PA PArty of the

Year. It is the place to

be on Friday night. We

transform the beautiful

lobby of the Convention

Center into PArty

Central with music that will

please everyone. At 10:00 p.m. our American PA

Idol show begins. The PArty continues as PAs compete and

the audience votes to name the next American PA Idol. The

Dance and American PA Idol competition are included with

your registration and guests are welcome to attend at no

charge. There will be a cash bar. This really is an event you

won’t want to miss!

Trending - Student Track on Saturday,

Including Speed Mentoring

Students, don’t miss this year’s special series of lectures

just for you. You will want to hear Mitzi D’Aquila’s lecture

entitled: How To Be A Great Student At Your Clinical Site.

She is back this year by popular demand. After Ms. D’Aquila’s

lecture, you will join everyone in the grand ballroom for a

lunch talk. Then back to the student track for a chance to

network and win some fabulous prizes! New this year: Speed

Mentoring! A special and unique opportunity to spend some

quality time with 6-8 hand-picked leaders of our profession.

After the Student Track, we will see you on the pool deck for

the CAPA Student Medical Challenge Bowl.

PA Program Faculty Recognition and

Special Reception

The PA profession is trending, and we want to honor our

PA Program faculty! Without faculty, there would be no

PAs. At the conference, look for the special PA Program

Faculty ribbons on badges. When you see them, thank

them for their dedication to the profession. If you are

faculty at a PA program, please let us know when registering

so we can give you a special badge ribbon. And, please

be sure to join us on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. for a reception

before the Student Challenge Bowl to recognize your

accomplishments and network with colleagues from other

California programs.

PArty At The Pool – 5:00 p.m. - Saturday

All-Star Band

This year, the CAPA All-Star Band will rock the house –

actually the pool deck! All will enjoy an incredible concert

before, during and after the Student Challenge Bowl.

Just in case you don’t get enough dancing and music

on Friday night at the CAPA Dance and American PA

Idol competition, we have more fun in store on the pool

deck on Saturday afternoon – a live band with PA, Greg

Mennie on drums!

Our special thanks to Greg Mennie, PA-C and the band

for making this performance at the CAPA Conference

possible.

The Conference program and activities are subject to change

without notice.

PAs TRENDING

What Is Trending In Your Life? Your Work Life, Your Private Life,

Your Extracurricular Life!

After almost 50 years of hard work and thousands of

important milestones, it seems PAs are an overnight

success!! At the CAPA Conference we will be celebrating

our acclaim!

We know that success happens with consistent

preparation and planning. Thanks to the work of CAPA

and AAPA and decades of PAs providing exceptional care

to patients, PAs are Trending! We did it together and we

will continue to work together to strengthen California

PAs’ role in health care. CAPA’s Vision: Fully integrate PAs

into every aspect of California’s health care.

What Milestone Are You Celebrating?

You didn’t arrive where you are today without hard

work, dedication and sacrifice. What is trending in your

life? New job, new baby, new role at work, going back to

school, getting into PA school, first clinical rotation, last

clinical rotation, a volunteer role, anniversary, graduation,

marriage, amazing vacation, grandchild, retirement,

overcoming a health issue, etc.

At the CAPA Conference we would love to share your

photo depiction of what is trending for you. We will put

all of the photos into PowerPoint and do a slideshow

each day as people enter the grand ballroom for meal

presentations.

Tell Us, What Is Trending In Your Life?

Please submit your digital photo to capa@capanet.org

along with a caption of no more than 25 words to let us

know a bit about the photo and how it illustrates what is

trending in your life.

Some Trending Photo Examples

At a recent CAPA leadership retreat we asked CAPA leaders to submit a photo that represents something

trending in their life. Have fun and get creative with your submission.

CURES AT CAPA

C

URES

AT CAPA

CAPA is committed to providing PAs with education

and tools to help you provide the best care possible

to your patients. At last year’s CAPA Conference

we provided a free service to allow attendees to sign up

for California’s Prescription Drug Monitoring Program

(CURES). Many people see the value of registering with

CURES, especially after taking the Controlled Substances

Education Course and hearing Jeremy Adler talk about

the important and practical use of the Patient Activity

Report. That report is an invaluable tool in developing a

risk assessment in patients taking controlled substances.

PAs leave the CSEC geared up and ready to register with

CURES. They get back to their office, log on to the site

and promptly fill out the CURES paperwork. They even

print it and then often the paperwork sits on their desk

because the next step is to have the form notarized. We

are all very busy and often we just don’t get to finding a

notary public, going to their location and paying the notary

fee. And, sometimes we do all of that and still find that the

notarized paperwork and accompanying documents never

make it into an envelope with postage and to the US Post

Office. CAPA is here to serve!

CURES at CAPA is a program which will allow you to do

it all in just a few moments at the CAPA Conference. We

will have a representative from the Department of Justice

Free Service at the CAPA Conference

This Year, Add a Few Important Documents to Your List of Things

To Pack For the CAPA Conference!

with us at the conference and he/she will accept and later

process all of your paperwork, free of charge. We have

made it easy, but you will still need to have 3 documents

with you and/or copies of them. Without them, you can’t

register on-site at the CAPA Conference for CURES.

Come to the conference with copies of the following to

be included in the envelope with the CURES application:

1) Your PA license, 2) your DEA Registration Certificate

and 3) a government issued identification (e.g. your driver’s

license). Make copies before you come to Palm Springs

(and remember to BRING THEM with you) or we will have

a scanner and we can scan them for you. Your life and

ours will be easier if you bring the copies. This is all about

making it easy for you!

Documents Needed to Complete the CURES

Registration at the CAPA Conference:

1) A copy of your PA license

2) A copy of your DEA Registration Certificate

3) A copy of a government issued identification

(e.g. your driver’s license).

Scrubs and Slippers

On Sunday morning, join us for breakfast and an exceptional line up

of speakers who requested they speak on Sunday!

Come on down for breakfast wearing your wildest (and/or most

stylish) scrubs and pump up the volume with your craziest slippers!

Relax and enjoy some of our best speakers on Sunday morning and

show off your personal style starting with a delicious breakfast and

coffee. It doesn’t get any better than attending high quality CME

combined with a splash of fun and color.

Stay until the last lecture ends and you could win one of two sets

of scrubs and a beautifully tailored lab coat (one men’s and one

women’s) from Medelita, sponsors of Scrubs and Slippers!

CONFERENCE HIGHLIGHTS

CAPA Student Medical Challenge Bowl –

Aqua CME

We’re back poolside for the Student Medical Challenge

Bowl. On Saturday afternoon, just as the sun begins to set

behind the mountains, the game begins. You won’t want

to miss this fun, light-hearted, Jeopardy-style game show

format event. PA students answer questions in order to vie

for the championship title, the coveted Student Challenge

Bowl Trophy and cash prize for the winning program’s

Student Society. It has become a highlight of the CAPA

Conference and so much fun to watch (and learn). So,

bring your sunglasses, have a beer or soft drink, grab a

lounge chair and see who will win this year’s CAPA Student

PAs are a unique group of providers who really want to

listen and learn. We share this fact with our exhibitors all of

the time. Please show them how much you appreciate their

support by spending quality time with them to learn about

their products and services. Word will get out that PAs offer

a great return on their investment and our Exhibit Hall will

grow. Exhibit fees help to defer costs of putting on the CAPA

Conference. Let’s all show them that the CAPA Conference is

where they want to exhibit year after year. Thank you.
