Sine 1976, our association has held a rich history of inclusion, celebration, scholarship, and friendship.

2016 In 2016, the association redefined the operating values to align with ACPA.  A product of this work was CPAK’s first Strategic Plan for Equity and Inclusion.  Through this plan, the role of Coordinator for Equity and Inclusion was approved for 2017.  CPAK collaborated to host the Careers in Student Affairs conference with KAHO (Kentucky Association of Housing Officers). At the 2017 ACPA Convention, CPAK was recognized with the Outstanding Membership Award for work during 2016.  Annual CPAK award winners included Angela Taylor, University of Louisville (Fred W.
