About the New York Metropolitan Chapter

The New York Metropolitan Chapter of ACRP, currently the largest world-wide, is celebrating its 20 year anniversary.  We are a recognized Chapter of Excellence dedicated to providing stellar education and training opportunities to our members. Founded in 2003, the chapter serves the New York metropolitan and surrounding areas to provide up-to-date information, continuing education credits, and networking for the research community. We develop regional programs that help clinical research professionals learn, develop, network and achieve professional goals. Annual programs include a full day symposium, three educational seminars, two certification prep course trainings, and a holiday networking party. The three educational seminars and full day symposium feature top industry leaders.

Our Members

The NY Metro Chapter has approximately 292 members. Our members come from New York (NYC, Westchester, and Long Island), New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Missouri, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Utah and Ontario, Canada. We are a comprehensive organization of clinical research professionals from a variety of backgrounds. Our members represent clinical sites, academia, industry (pharma, device, and biotech), CROs, and consultants who hold positions such as project and line managers, CRAs, CRCs, clinical QA, IRB administrators, nurses, physicians, trainers and contract administrators.
