Networking, Collaboration, Publication

OCAMPR is expanding and developing member benefits in 2021 and 2022 to include more members-only networking, collaboration and publication opportunities.

Professional Members may vote and hold all offices except Associate Chairperson. Associate Members may not vote, but they may hold office as Associate Chairperson.


Membership Qualifications

Professional Membership

Professional Membership is open to Eastern Orthodox Christian care professionals who work in the fields of medicine, psychology and religion. Because OCAMPR has ecclesial oversight from the Assembly of Bishops of North and Central America, it is necessary for Professional Members to be members of parishes under the jurisdiction of the Assembly of Bishops.

Associate Membership

Individuals who do not meet professional AND ecclesial qualifications (such as students, non-caregivers and those whose parishes do not fall under the Assembly of Bishops), are welcome to join OCAMPR as Associate Members.


Membership Dues & Renewal

Annual Fees

Members are invited to pay the recommended dues of $150 per year.

However, both Professional Members and Associate Members may elect to submit dues of any amount. This is intended to encourage students, retirees, and those with limited incomes to join and support the mission of OCAMPR.

Important Dates

The OCAMPR Membership year begins July 1.
