Dear NCVACC Members abd VA Catholic Chaplain Brothers!

I am pleased to write to you regarding our 2014 NCVACC Annual Educational Conference. The theme for this year's conference is "Moral Injury and Spiritual care of the Combat Veteran." We have experts in the field that will be presenting at the conference from both the military and VA community.

Our conference this year is to be held at the University of Utah Guesthouse and Conference Center in Salt​​​​​​ Lake City, Utah. The conference begins Monday October 6th with the Liturgy of the Eucharist at 4PM and ends Thursday evening on October 9th. Please plan your travel days to be Monday and Friday for the conference.

The University of Utah Guesthouse and Conference center is located on the grounds of the University of Utah and is adjacent to the grounds of Fort Douglas. In additon to the guesthouse accommodations, the building of the once active fort provide a beautiful setting for the conference. The Guesthouse is a modern hotel with options for a private room, or for attendees to share a room. A free breakfast is provided every morning for those staying at the hotel. Please visit their website  at www.universityguesthouse.com

Included in this Registration packet is critical information for the entire registration process. This year the VA has implemented a new process of "pre-registration" for all external conference, which includes the NCVACC conference.

All those attending, whether paying their own way, or being funded for the conference by their station need to follow the pre-registration procedures.
