If an in-person event sells out due to limited capacity, the CPCA training team will maintain a waitlist to reallocate any spots that become available.

All waitlist requests must be made in writing and sent to Once CPCA staff are notified of an opening, the first entry on the waitlist will be notified via email and will have until the end of the next business day to confirm by replying to the email. If confirmation is not received by the end of the next business day, the open spot will be given to the next entry on the waitlist. 

Note: If there are fewer than 5 business days before the event, the confirmation timeframe will change to the end of the same business day.


Effective 11/1/2023, CPCA prohibits the use of AI note-taking tools during virtual events. This policy is based on the following principles:

  1. Preservation of Intellectual Property: Virtual events often involve the sharing of proprietary information, copyrighted materials, or confidential data. The use of AI note-taking tools can lead to unauthorized duplication and distribution of such content.

Session facilitators have the authority to deny and or dismiss all AI Note-Taking tools from the event.
