ACPE/APC Merger Vote

After decades of collaboration and a few years of negotiations, the Boards of Directors of the ACPE: The Standard for Spiritual Care and Education and the Association of Professional Chaplains met concurrently on March 18, 2021 at 10:00am EDT/9:00am CDT to entertain a motion that the organizations officially merge. Both organizations approved the motion.

Now ACPE members and APC members will have the opportunity to vote on the proposed merger. The vote will be conducted electronically. Polls will be open from July 6, 2021 to July 26, 2021.

The communications teams of ACPE and APC are working closely to coordinate a schedule of town halls, information sessions, FAQ documents, and other resources to help all members be fully informed prior to a vote.
