Assisting public members and the health professional oversight bodies on which they serve
Since 1987, CAC has been serving the public interest by enhancing the effectiveness and accountability of health professional oversight bodies. We offer training, research and networking opportunities for public members and for the health care regulatory, credentialing, and governing boards on which they serve.
Created as a support program for the thousands of public members serving on health professional boards as representatives of the consumer interest, CAC soon became a resource for the health professional boards themselves.

CAC's 2013 annual meeting was held in Seattle, Washington, on Tuesday and Wednesday, October 29 - 30, 2013. This year, the theme of the meeting was Regulation’s Impact on Access to Safe Affordable Care. Since major sections of The Affordable Care Act will go into effect in January 2014, it is timely to discuss access because the addition of millions of currently uninsured citizens will place strains on the health workforce.
