Conjugate Acids and Bases Concept

Am I understanding this right...

Once an acid donates a proton (hydrogen) the resulting molecule is the conjugate base of that acid and vice versa for a base and a conjugate acid?

Yes, the acid is related to the conjugate base and the base is related to the conjugate acid.
