Greetings to all in the Northeast/Eastern Regions of AAPC:
Thanks to the many AAPC and ACPE members who voted for a consolidation, I am happy to say that our partnership is moving forward quickly. We hope to have many years together as a vibrant organization devoted to the spiritual care of people in a variety of settings.
While I am excited about new beginnings, I know how important it is to give thanks for the gifts we have received and the work we have done as members of the Northeast and Eastern regions of AAPC.
At our conference last fall, we talked about holding an event that celebrated the blessings of the Northeast/Eastern regions of AAPC. Today, our executive board members began to plan for this celebration, which will take place on Saturday, May 4, 2019, at First Church of Christ, 366 Main Street, Saybrook CT. We will begin with lunch, and end with dinner. We are investigating the possibility of holding some local hotel rooms for people who would like to stay in Saybrook on Saturday night.
The theme for the day will be: Remember, Rejoice, and Renew! We remember and celebrate the many years that AAPC members have provided compassionate, professional counseling services to so many people in our regions. We rejoice and celebrate that our good work will continue in our new home, ACPE.
More details will follow soon; we just wanted to get out the date as soon as possible.
Many thanks for all that has been, and great hope for all that will be.
Joann Heaney-Hunter Chair, Eastern Region, AAPC
