Letter to North Carolina Chaplains

April 1, 2020

Dear Chaplains,

Our Executive Committee of the North Carolina Chaplains Association met by conference call on March 27th to discuss how to proceed with the 2020 Spring Education event in regards to the novel Corona virus, COVID- 19.

We decided to cancel the webinar we hoped to host:

Medical experts are saying that we are still in the upswing in the bell curve of people contracting and spreading the virus.

We wonder if chaplains would be able to receive the information provided by our speaker if we are focused on the effects of COVID-19 and collateral impacts.

We are concerned that we do not have the IT support to manage connection issues from the receivers’ ends.

We will give full refunds to everyone. We are also willing to move registration monies to another event should reimbursement not work for the individual or institution.  We are holding onto the books included in registration and will distribute them to persons who enroll for the Spring Education Day next year.

We are working to schedule our Spring Education Day in 2021

We are working with our speaker, Dana Trent, and several conference centers. Our new date and location will be shared as soon as it is available.

New ways to stay connected

We discussed the need to support each other during these times of dislocation, disruption, and high stress. NCCA will send e-mails to provide some humor and compassion to us.

I am thankful to have Wanda, our Executive Committee, and our NCCA officers serving at this time. They are a blessing. Please keep us and each other in your prayers.

Blessings,

Greg McClain, President of the NCCA
