February 2019

Latest news
You may notice some changes to the website over the coming weeks. We’re removing a lot of older material to keep the content fresh, and items with links that no longer work; and we’ll also be giving the regional groups a higher profile, with a section of their own. Please bear with us – the aim is that the slimmed down site will make it easier to find things. We’ll also be making more use of our Facebook page.

Membership Renewal for 2019
It’s also time to renew your AHPCC membership, if you haven’t already done so – Membership is for the Calendar Year. You can download the Membership Form here to do so. NB if you rely on your hospice finance department to renew on your behalf, please check that they have done so, as some members have occasionally been surprised to find that their membership lapsed long ago!

The 2019 Annual Conference
Details are now available for the Annual Conference in May (13th-15th at the Hayes, Swanwick). All the main speakers are now confirmed, and we’ve just some of the workshop details to confirm. Please download a copy of the Conference Poster and the Booking Form and book your place. As well as being very rewarding, both professionally and personally, it’s also an effective way to gain most of the annual CPD points that the UKBHC requires.  The conference always seeks to provide professionally relevant training – this year’s conference is strongly geared to the current issues that we are facing within chaplaincy. As Karen’s latest letter will have informed you, we’ve had to increase the price this year – for the first time since 2011 – but we still believe the conference offers very good value considering the quality of the speakers and full board accommodation.
