History of the CAP
In May 1993, eight pioneering companies met with the AACE Executive Committee to identify common interests. Originally named the Corporate Advisory Board (CAB), this group forged what is recognized by many as one of the most unique relationships between a medical association and its corporate partners. In 2003, CAB was changed to the Corporate AACE Partnership (CAP) in order to display, in name and by actions, AACE’s commitment to working collaboratively with its industry partners in developing educational initiatives and programs of mutual benefit to each group. Since its inception over 15 years ago, CAP has grown to more than 35 industry partners.
