The annual membership gathering of the Spiritual Care Association takes place each year during the Caring for the Human Spirit Conference®, presented by the HealthCare Chaplaincy Network.

SCA members receive special member pricing to attend this conference.
SCA is leading the grassroots, national and global, multidisciplinary advocacy effort that:
|Is uniting the voices of individual and organizational members to advance the integration of spiritual care in health care so that more people receive the help they need|
|Gives chaplains a seat “at the table” when major decisions are being made about policy and reimbursement for inpatient, outpatient and home care|
