Meetings ▷ Regional Chairs' & Admins' Meetings

Regional Meetings of Chairs and Administrators

Regional meetings are NOT planned and executed by either the staff or the Council of the Association of Pathology Chairs, and therefore, are NOT official meetings of the APC. Regional meetings are organized locally, by the regional contacts listed below, and are supported by their own registrations and the sponsoring institutions (unless otherwise noted), and the APC cannot be held liable for any arrangements. Thus, the use of the APC logo and the formal name of the legally incorporated, "Association of Pathology Chairs (APC)" are not permitted when organizing a regional meeting. All questions about the regional meetings should be referred directly to those contacts listed below.
