About the Northern California (SF Bay Area) Chapter 

The Northern California Chapter (NCC) was founded in 1999 as an affiliate of the Association of Clinical Research Professionals (ACRP). Our mission is to serve Northern California clinical research professionals by providing professional development and networking opportunities in support of human subject protections in clinical research.

We offer high quality, low-cost events, almost monthly and rotated around our region: Sacramento, North Bay, San Francisco – Palo Alto (Peninsula), Berkeley - east (East Bay), and Silicon Valley - San Jose (South Bay). Our annual program includes a Planning Meeting, several educational and networking events, and a year-end holiday educational event.  All events are open to the clinical research community.  We have ~200 members, one of the largest Chapters. We accomplish our robust program due to sponsorship and our volunteers.

We share expertise with other chapters and have volunteered and presented at the global level with ACRP.  Attendees have gained new colleagues, strengthened their expertise, and found their next job or hired their next staff from our events. Volunteers contribute time and expertise to further the profession, showcase or develop leadership and other skills, and have fun doing so.
