National Office

Our national office staff is here to serve the needs of members of our organization, answer questions from persons interested in membership and to assist in the management of the many services provided by the Association of Professional Chaplains® to over 5,000 members. The vast majority of that service is delivered by the staff members in the national office who define the quality of the whole association by everything from the way they answer the telephone to the promptness and efficiency with which they respond to requests from members, prospective members and the general public. The APC® is known for providing excellent service to its members mainly because of the dedication and skill of the national staff.
