APC and BCCI invoices are now posted to your APC Profile.  To access your invoice, please log into your APC account via the homepage, then use the menu on the right-hand side to locate "Account Details," then "My Invoices."  You can pay your invoice online or print out the invoice and send a check, submit them to your institution for payment/reimbursement or call into the APC office.  APC understands that the COVID-19 pandemic and its fallout have had a financial impact on many of our members.  Please contact our Membership Department if you would like to discuss options for financial assistance. 

APC Annual Meeting and Roundtable Calls- Over the last two months, APC’s board of directors have held the Annual APC Membership Meeting (See the message from the President in this issue) and Board Roundtable calls on a number of topics important to APC’s membership.  These topics included APC/BCCI Financials, Updates to the Strategic Partners, Quality and Research in professional chaplaincy and Open Forum discussions.  These round-table calls are a venue for APC members to ask questions and provide feedback to the APC Board of Directors.

Open positions for APC Volunteer Leadership: APC encourages members interested in learning more about serving in volunteer leadership positions to learn more and apply for positions of interest to you.  These volunteer positions include serving on APC Committees (Education, Membership, Communications, Quality and Research, and others) and serving as State and Local leaders as Representatives and Continuing Education Chairs.  If you would like to volunteer to participate as an APC State or local leader or to serve on an APC committee, please review the application procedure here.
