MORE ABOUT BENEFITS

  1. NETWORKING, COLLABORATION, PUBLICATION
    OCAMPR is expanding and developing membership benefits in 2021 and 2022 to include more members-only networking, collaboration, leadership, and publication opportunities. Upcoming ministries include the Chaplain’s Corner blog by Sarah Byrne-Martelli and discipline-specific virtual events.
  2. REDUCED EVENT ADMISSION
    Professional and Associate Members enjoy reduced admission to the annual OCAMPR conference held every November. Past event video and audio recordings of lectures and workshops are available free to the general public on YouTube in partnership with our friends at Ancient Faith Ministries.
  3. MEMBERSHIP DIRECTORY LISTING
    Professional and Associate Members may choose to be listed publicly in our global Member Directory. Directories are shared as PDF files with members and the general public and do not include personal contact information, such as addresses and phone numbers, or a map.
  4. LEADERSHIP OPPORTUNITIES
    Professional and Associate Members are encouraged to run for office. Positions are held for two years. Professional Members may vote and hold all leadership positions except Associate Chairperson. Associate Members may not vote, but they may hold office as Associate Chairperson.

DO I QUALIFY?

Our professionally diverse fellowship welcomes you with open arms. Professional Membership is open to care professionals in all caregiving fields related to medicine, psychology, and religion. Professional Members must be members of parishes under the jurisdiction of the Assembly of Canonical Orthodox Bishops of North and Central America, because the Assembly of Bishops has ecclesial oversight over OCAMPR. Individuals who do not meet ecclesial or professional qualifications (such as students, non-caregivers, and membership applicants whose parishes do not fall under the Assembly of Bishops), are welcome to join OCAMPR as Associate Members.
