Siblings, Happy New Year, and Happy Feast of the Presentation! It’s been a while since you’ve heard from AEHC, but with a new year there are always new opportunities to share.
One thing we need to share is an opportunity to serve AEHC, one that is unexpected. As a non-profit business chartered in Ohio, AEHC needs someone to serve as Statutory Agent. The Statutory Agent is a person or business office to represent AEHC in Ohio. From the Ohio Secretary of State’s website:
“A statutory agent will be served all legal documents regarding your business entity and is responsible for sharing this information with you.
The statutory agent must be one of the following: (1) A natural person who is a resident of this state; or (2) A [business or] association that has a business address in this state.”
Essentially, the Statutory Agent is a point of contact for the state of Ohio when forms need to be updated or fees need to be paid. The agent wouldn’t be responsible for the work, but for forwarding the necessary information to the officers. Again, the only requirement is that the agent have an Ohio address. So, if you are in Ohio, please consider taking on this small but important role for the Assembly.
There is another note about opportunities. AEHC has long met during the conference of the Association of Professional Chaplains (APC) because it offered the best opportunity to combine time with colleagues with opportunities for continuing education. In addition to meeting requirements for APC or ACPE, some workshops this year will qualify for CEU’s under the National Board of Certified Counseling (NBCC). This year APC’s annual conference will be entirely virtual. This is a joint conference with the Association of Professional Chaplains (ACPE). The dates are May 9-12, and you can find information at https://web.cvent.com/event/20f557f2-8212-41ac-94c0-f4e46ce95048/summary.
AEHC will also meet virtually on May 11 at 9:00 a.m. CST. There will be more information prior to the conference. This year’s meeting will offer another opportunity: this year we elect a President-elect. If you feel called, the Executive Committee would like to hear it. Even if you don’t feel called to be President-elect, please join in to vote for and welcome the person who is called.

Below is the 2021 Financial Report submitted by Andrew Peterson, AEHC Treasurer. The report provides information beginning when he assumed office in 2019. Note that AEHC has stopped accepting credit card payments for the time being due to the high fees noted in the report.
