2020 Joint Conference - Call for Proposals


APC Forum, May 2019, Vol. 20 No. 3

On behalf of the Partners for Professional Excellence in Spiritual Care (Partners), we invite submission of proposals for Professional Development Intensives (also called Pre/Post Conference workshops) which are eight- and four-hour sessions and 90 Minute Workshops for our 2020 Joint Conference, May 11-14 in Cleveland, Ohio. Intensives will begin on May 10.
The 2020 Joint Conference Theme is 20/20 Vision: The Future of Spiritual Care which invites you to share your expertise, inspire colleagues, stimulate thoughtful discussion, and educate others on important issues within institutional chaplaincy/spiritual care and psycho spiritual therapy.  
Our goals at the 2020 Conference will be:
•    Share leading practices in research, professional development, and credentialing
•    Strengthen professional relations
•    Focus our time, talents and resources on those most vulnerable
•    Grow our practical and professional skills
We also want proposals that recognize, engage, and expand the diversity within our field, for example: international or intercultural collaborations; military, prison, outpatient, or workplace chaplains; care for pediatric, geriatric, rural, newly immigrated, or indigenous populations; chaplains/spiritual care providers familiar with misunderstood spiritual/religious constituencies; chaplaincy care with LGBTQ sensibilities; how race, gender, sexuality, or disability relate to spiritual care; one-person departments; retirement; etc.
Please follow this link to the call for proposal information and proposal application forms located on the Partners for Professional Excellence in Spiritual Care 2020 Conference website: The deadline date for receiving proposals is July 1, 2019.
We look forward to your willingness to be a presenter and participate in our 2020 conference.
