Greetings to all during this wonderful summer season!
Some may be heading off for vacations, but the work at the NACAR Office continues, as well as the planning of various projects for the future.
Our website is filled with new additions and new information. For instance, the Consultant & Speakers Directory under the Members tab (you must be logged in). Everyone who is a member of NACAR is invited to be a part of this directory. If you are willing to make yourself available to be a speaker on Associate issues, wish to facilitate retreats or days of prayer, or have a gift to share with other NACAR members, please contact us. You will find a link to information and an application at the top of the directory or by clicking here. Once you are listed and are contacted by a group, it is up to you to negotiate the fee for service. If you are looking for someone who is willing to make themselves available for your special event as a speaker or retreat director, check out our Consultant & Speaker Directory.
NACAR is always interested in learning about Regional Groups of Associates and Religious who meet together for discussion groups or to have a speaker come to share in their area of expertise. If you live in an area where a regional group is already functioning, please send a schedule of the events that are already planned. Flyers can be posted on the NACAR web site. If the area in which you live does not have a regional group and you would like to start one, we can give you suggestions on how to get started.
We are happy to welcome two new NACAR Board members, Barbara Roth, Associate with Dominicans of Sinsinawa, and Amy Kulesa, Director of Associates for Sisters of Bon Secours. Their term begins in November, but they both are serving on NACAR Committees already. Check out their photos and information on the Board of Directors tabtab under Who We Are and congratulate them!
