We are excited to announce a new twist on an old favorite! The Auction at the Annual Conference sends many home with unique items, vacations, and services all the while benefiting the leader-equipping ministry of PCCCA. This year in addition to the silent and live auction in person at the conference in November, we are also hosting an online auction that will begin in the fall! This is your chance to support this ministry through the donation of items, trips, or services and you can do that right now! No reason to procrastinate! Submit your donated item via the online form. For all items donated, you will receive a letter suitable for IRS contribution. Winners of items will not be able to claim the purchase as a charitable contribution. Please consider donating and complete this form as soon as possible!
Now is the time to make plans to attend the two Compass Points certificate programs in October. Non-Profit Business Management will be offered on October 14-17 and the Articulating Our Mission, Role, and Value course is scheduled for October 17-20. You can take one or both of these classes which will be hosted by Kavanaugh Conference and Retreat Center (Crestwood, KY). Please go to www.compasspointsprogram.org to learn more about these courses (and register).
We now have 34 member discounts! As a part of the benefits you receive through membership, PCCCA offers these special discounts on different products and services related to camps and conference centers. Utilizing two or more of these company discounts could save you more money than you pay in membership dues. You can check out the list by going to the PCCCA website. If you are a current PCCCA member, we hope you will login to the Resources page on the PCCCA website and utilize these discounts for your ministry. If you are not yet a member, you can join or renew at www.pccca.net/membership.
For most of our camps and conference centers, their PCCCA membership expired on January 1. Now would be a great time to join or renew your PCCCA membership. You have the option of joining for one year or saving some money by paying for two years. Please keep in mind that PCCCA membership now lasts one (or two) years beyond your renewal date and does not follow the calendar year. If you are a smaller camp, keep in mind that there is a new discounted rate for membership. You can join using a check or credit card by going to www.pccca.net/membership.
