UCA

URGENT CARE ASSOCIATION

The People Behind UCA

UCA is led by a strong group of innovative, creative, persistent and motivated people who only want to bring the best in urgent care education, resources and industry news to you when you need it most.

UCA is governed by a Board of Directors. A new class of Directors is elected annually via an online process that culminates at the UCA Convention. Each Director serves a three-year term, and can serve up to two consecutive terms. Board Officers are elected by the Directors.
