Call for APC Annual Conference Poster Presenters

by Rev. Anne Lange MDiv BCC
APC™ Forum, February 2017, Vol. 19 No. 1
 
APCTM’s Conference Education Task Force invites you to submit poster presentation proposals for the 2017 APC™ Annual Conference by Tuesday, Feb. 21, 2017. The accepted posters will be displayed in the hallways around the conference from Friday to Sunday, June 23-25. There will be a special session from 5:30-6:45 pm on Saturday that will bring a crowd of chaplains, peers and students to see your poster, converse about it and interact with you.
 
For anyone who has an idea to share, bringing a poster to a professional conference is an exciting opportunity. You can interact and collaborate with others, hone your presentation skills and network with others who have knowledge and interest in your topic.
 
Posters are an ideal way to share research and innovation. Compelling poster presentations are one way of expressing our voice in the professional and academic fields, supporting our conference theme, “The Powerful Voice of Chaplaincy.” Posters can highlight strategic partnerships, summarize research studies, preview research in progress, show off creative initiatives and/or share innovative clinical practices.
 
Sometimes we dread the work of putting together a poster or think we need advanced graphic-design skills or just shy away because we never made one before. But there are many resources that can help, including these guidelines and information on crafting a professional poster. We are continuing to partner with MakeSigns.com to offer poster templates at a discount.
 
We look forward to reviewing your poster proposal and encourage all members and friends of APC™ to consider this opportunity for the 2017 annual conference. If you have any questions, please contact conference@professionalchaplains.org.
 
Rev. Anne Lange MDiv BCC serves on APC's 2017 Conference Planning Committee as the Conference Education Task Force chair. She currently serves as Spiritual Director for Princeton Theological Seminary students and chases her toddler boys around. Anne may be contacted at annereedlange@gmail.com.
