Welcome to CAPS Cares Corner. This is a CAPS Members only feature with the goal to celebrate and get to know our members unique initiatives, specifically:

Celebrate each other’s success (ie. Book launch, international contract)
Celebrate unique collaboration
Celebrate member community contributions

Share with us after the fact so we can celebrate, and learn from your success. This is not an opportunity to sell your offerings, but to inform, celebrate and inspire us of how to collaborate with our clients, colleagues and community.
