Seeing Hope in New Ways: Possibilities and Perceptions

April 10-13, 2019
Fourth Presbyterian Church, Chicago

The Associated Church Press and Religion Communicators Council are pleased to announce the dates for their joint convention in 2019. We’ll meet together April 10-13, 2019 at Fourth Presbyterian Church in Chicago. Although we’ll have our own award ceremonies, the convention is being planned by a team from both organizations and we’ll share in workshops, keynote speakers, networking opportunities and faith expressions. ACP members will have the option to attend the RCC’s DeRose Hinkhouse awards and the Wilbur Awards, which honors the best in religious coverage in the secular press.

Registration details will follow shortly.

We’ll return to the incredible facilities at Fourth Presbyterian Church as our convention host. Located on Chicago’s Magnificent Mile — as close as you can get to the Windy City’s shopping, entertainment and the lakeshore district — the church is a beautiful landmark and a vibrant member of Chicago’s downtown community.

Our conference hotel will again be the Millennium Knickerbocker where we’ve negotiated the same room rate as last year – $139 / night + taxes! Reservations are available via a direct link to our discount block, using the promo code 1904ASSCHU, or by calling the hotel reservation line (800-621-8140) and mentioning you are part of the ACP/RCC Room Block. The promotional rate expires March 10, 2019.
