By joining CAPPS today you help ensure that our staff and lobbyists are working on the issues that directly affect you.
While CAPPS works on behalf of all proprietary schools in California, our resources are limited and those issues that we focus on are dictated by our member’s concerns. By joining now you can help direct CAPPS’ priorities. See information regarding dues here.
We work hard for you!
Legislation: CAPPS is the voice of the sector in California. CAPPS’ staff, lobbyists, and legal counsel influence, support, or actively oppose bills that are introduced annually in the state legislature that affect you. Along with our political action committee, the Independent Coalition of Educators Political Action Committee (ICEPAC) we help you protect your rights to operate your school in a business-like manner.
Public Relations: Our sector changes thousands of lives for the better every year. CAPPS is engaged in bringing the very positive stories of our member schools to the Governor, the Legislature, the media and the general public. CAPPS’ member schools are featured in press releases, electronic updates and other media formats. Your membership provides opportunities to talk about your Institutional activities in new and exciting ways.
Direct Institutional Help: Whether a state law compliance issue or an educational decision to add a branch or a new program, CAPPS is here to offer expert advice and assistance. Or we can assist you in finding the qualified expert that you need to resolve your issues.
