The Consortium for Advanced Practice's dues-based membership program provides a platform for our community to network, to participate in sharing expertise, wisdom and best practices. The Consortium exists to support new and ongoing postgraduate training programs for nurse practitioners and physician assistants in the achievement and maintenance of the highest standards of rigor and quality, consistent with achieving the goal of an expert healthcare workforce prepared to meet the needs of patients and the society as a whole.

Poster Presentations: Presenter Requirements, Cancellation and No-Show Policy
The Consortium views a submission of an abstract as a commitment by the author(s) to present the poster/abstract if their submission is accepted. Late cancellations and failures to give scheduled presentations without prior notification (“no-shows”) are disruptive and inconvenient for conference attendees and organizers. The Consortium has adopted the following policies to prevent avoidable cancellations and no-shows and to improve the overall quality of our programs:
The lead author of a poster submission is the designated contact and poster presenter for that submission (if accepted). The lead author of an ACCEPTED poster must register for the the Consortium's 2023 annual conference, at the appropriate rate, in order to present their poster at their scheduled session time.
Presenter Cancellations: If the lead author cannot attend, presentation by a co-author is acceptable. However, the lead author is responsible for notifying the Consortium staff, via email, of the change and ensuring that their replacement is registered and paid in full for all Consortium conference fees. Please make every effort to notify the Consortium of presenter cancellations and presenter changes by July 16, 2023.
- Presenter is required to register and attend the 1.5-day conference (July 23-24)
