    Thank You Retired (and Retiring) ACPE Members!

    Jul 23, 2021

    As we quickly approach #ACPEproud week, (August 3-5, 2021) the Foundation for ACPE would like to recognize all of our retired members. The Foundation for ACPE is the legacy of trailblazing ACPE members who responded to the need for nurturing spiritual care professionals for generations to come. Over the years, many retired members have contributed donations to our endowment. We continue to reap the benefits of those gifts today. Income from our endowment has helped us to not only provide continuing education through the Glaz-Plummer plenaries, but has also given us much needed financial support to navigate the economic volatility caused by the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, and other tumultuous events.

    As we are pondering the proposed merger some of us may ask: “What’s going to happen to our money?” to which some others who are new to ACPE or just very busy would respond: “What money?” Indeed, we have some money.

    The Foundation for ACPE wants to hear from you!

    Promoting innovation is a core function of the Foundation for ACPE. We keep our eyes on the future of the profession of spiritual care providers, educators, and spiritually integrated psychotherapists. Recent trends show that the degree with which ACPE Educators will retire in the next 10 years is not matched by newly certified ACPE educators entering the job market.
