News and Information

News and Information for members of and people interested in the North American Conference of Associates and Religious.

jconnollyIn our continued effort to be transparent and accountable, here is a summary of our spring in-person Board of Directors meeting held March 25 to 26, at the Felician Sisters Convent in Chicago, IL. In addition to receiving and accepting routine reports, the Board:

  • Changed registered agent and legal address in preparation for filing annual nonprofit report for the State of Illinois. There is NO change in our membership office address.
  • Created a timeline for rolling out a refreshed logo. You will begin seeing the new logo later this summer and into the fall.
  • Authorized a two-year agreement for a new membership database. More information will be coming out over the next several weeks.

(NOTE: The need for a logo redesign and new database came to light through the Communication Audit and Fund Development Assessment received by the Board in the fall of 2018. The logo refresh and the new database are paid for with funds from The Father’s Table grant.)

  • Reviewed the Marketing and Exhibit plan for NACAR in fiscal year 2019-20. NACAR will continue to have a presence at LCWR. In 2019, NACAR will also have a presence at the Religious Formation Conference Congress Congress in Louisville and participate in the Catholics on Call Partnership workshop in Chicago.
  • Approved an increase in the Community membership dues. This is the first dues increase in 15 years. Additional information will go out to Community members by mid-April.
  • Reviewed applications for Board membership and tabled the decision as final details on future planning and Board needs are determined.
  • Reviewed and approved a plan to engage Regional Groups of Associates and other partners and potential partners in co-creating a vibrant path for the future of NACAR.

As always, we are grateful for your continued support and encouragement. Please keep your eye out for information on some of these actions, as well as our continued membership services.
