I am excited to invite you to join your friends and colleagues for the AAPC 2017 Conference in Decatur, GA, March 23-25, 2017. With all the changes in our field, and especially with all the structural and organizational changes happening within our organization, this conference will be a great time to learn about the new and challenging ways that AAPC continues to be a leader in the area of spiritually integrated psychotherapy and care. The theme of the conference is: Vision and Opportunity; The Future of Spiritually Integrated Psychotherapy and Care. The program planning committee has been designing this conference to provide meaningful plenary sessions and workshops specifically to address the rapidly changing environment of pastoral care and counseling in the 21st century. Please join us in Atlanta in March, 2017.

We are pleased to note that due to receiving the gift of a grant from AAPC's Mission Advance Program endowment fund, the cost of this year’s conference registration is being partially underwritten. This is an investment not only in the future of AAPC, but is an investment in you as a participant in this future. On the registration form, the full price of the registration is noted by the strike through cost, and the discount after underwriting is what is noted as the price you will pay. We were not able to reflect this discount in the on-line system, but you will note that stated rates are the discounted price. For those registering for a one-day or half-day option, you will note that a specific discount has not been applied, but the grant has allowed us to maintain low pricing for these options as well.

Randy J. Simmonds, Ph.D.
AAPC President
