APC Award Nominations Deadline Extended Until May 14, 2021

The APC recognizes individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the profession of chaplaincy through our Annual Leadership Awards. From administrators who demonstrate exceptional commitment to the development of chaplaincy care programs to chaplains who provide chaplaincy care in an exemplary manner, we celebrate the gifts and contributions of those who promote professional chaplaincy. Award recipients are recognized each year at the annual conference of the association. APC members and colleagues of members are invited to nominate persons you feel offer outstanding leadership and excellence in chaplaincy care.

 Nominations for awards must be submitted to the APC national office by the May 14, 2021 deadline. Nominations may be e-mailed to info@professionalchaplains.org, faxed to 847.240.1015 or mailed to the APC national office. Award recipients will be recognized at the 2021 APC Virtual Conference – Celebrating 75 Years, June 10-12, 2021
