Future Trends: Great Opportunities
The President’s Address for The Association of Professional Chaplains

By Amy Greene, Board Chair | August 5, 2019

In lieu of reading a column from me this month, please take 30 minutes to view this speech from Rev. Ron Oliver, President of the Association of Professional Chaplains (APC), from their annual meeting in June in Orlando, FL. The Strategic Partners for Spiritual Care (ACPE, APC, NACC, NAJC, and CASC) are going deep with this question: “What do we need to be and do to ensure the vitality of our great profession?”

Ron’s speech will provide a great amount of information, context and, I believe, inspiration for this subject – the when, the why, the who, and most importantly, the why now? Ron did an amazing job of boiling down complex issues – market forces, changing demographics and more – to make a case for why we would be stronger together.

I want to ensure you are informed and engaged during our talks with our strategic partners. I urge you to watch the video and consistently read the weekly newsletter. In the coming months, we will host a series of townhall meetings as details emerge. In the meantime, if you have questions after watching Ron’s speech, please email me at greenea3@ccf.org. Thank you for our ongoing dedication to our association and the field of spiritual care and education!
