NCMA 2013 Conference Special Announcement

11 Mar

I am thrilled to announce that there will be a sexuality education pre-conference training for anyone attending National Campus Ministry Association’s (NCMA) Annual Conference in Atlanta, GA this summer. Typically a $50 cost, this half-day training is free to all attending NCMA’s annual conference, and is being offered by the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) and the United Church of Christ (UCC). You can register for this training on the NCMA conference registration site.

Training Details:

 

  • What: 1/2 day, 4 hour sexuality education training
  • When: Tuesday, July 9th from 2-6pm
  • For Who: Created for campus ministers, this is open to anyone attending the National Campus Ministry Association’s 2013 annual conference
  • By Who: Melanie Davis, Our Whole Lives (OWL) Program Associate for the Unitarian Universalist Association will be leading the training.

Rev. Stephen Boyd, Minister for Chaplains and Specialized Ministers for the United Church Christ will also be present.

  • Cost: Free! Generally $50, this training is being offered to all attending the National Campus Ministry Association’s Annual Conference for no cost.

At this training, you will:

 

  • Gain skills in discussing sexuality with students
  • Learn how to work as an individual campus minister and partner with on- and off-campus resources to create more sexually healthy campuses
  • Build knowledge in LGBTQIA identities and concerns
  • Gain resources for yourself and your students

Many thanks to the UUA/UCC team who has worked on developing this training, and the NCMA Coordinating Council who provided us with concrete information on what campus ministers need today and aren’t getting from their other trainings. We look forward to hosting this timely and relevant training, and to meeting you all in Atlanta this summer.

Register for this training on the NCMA conference registration site, and if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me at kparker @ uua.org.

Blessings,
Kayla
