Past Presidents






Throughout the history of our predecessor organizations and within the current history of the Association of Professional Chaplains®, numerous colleagues have contributed to the work of the associations through their service in the office of president. Terms of service have varied from one year to three, but remaining constant is the investment of time, energy and commitment that it takes to fulfill this leadership role. We honor the gifts and service of the following leaders:
