March 24, 2020 -- Amid the coronavirus pandemic, the College of American Pathologists (CAP) has canceled its Leadership Summit and House of Delegates meeting, which was scheduled for May 2-5 in Washington, DC.

In a letter to members posted online, CAP President Dr. Patrick Godbey explained that health was of paramount importance and that the organization would not be charging any cancellation fees. Those who had booked should cancel hotel reservations directly and contact their airlines to rearrange plans or, where applicable, contact the CAP travel desk. CAP is considering holding sessions online this year as an alternative.
