Call for 2018 Conference Submissions

by Rev. Brian Hurley MDiv BCC, Chair – 2018 Conference Education Subcommittee
APC Forum, July 2017, Vol. 19 No. 5
The 2018 Conference Education Subcommittee invites submission of proposals for Professional Development Intensives (eight and four hour) and 90 Minute Workshops at our 2018 Annual Conference, July 12-15 at the Anaheim Marriott in Anaheim, CA. This will be a joint conference with APC and NACC (National Association of Catholic Chaplains). The submission deadline is September 15, 2017.
The 2018 conference theme is Partners in Shaping the Future. We encourage you to share your expertise, inspire colleagues, stimulate thoughtful discussion and educate others on important issues within institutional chaplaincy.
We hope to receive proposals for educational offerings including:
  • New and creative ways for chaplains to collaborate with interdisciplinary partners
  • Implications of innovative quality-improvement projects
  • Next steps in evidence-based chaplaincy, in practice and theory
  • Research or pilot projects testing new services in new settings
  • Addressing spiritual care needs in non-acute care settings
  • Reflecting the theme of the conference
We also want proposals that recognize, engage and expand the diversity within our field.
The Proposal Forms will provide the information that the committee members need for the selection process. The deadline to submit proposals is September 15, 2017. Please contact the APC office at 847.240.1014 or email if you have any questions.
