Dear Members and Friends,

We are thinking about you and the many ways your lives are changing with the spread of COVID-19. Today, the Board gathered and prayed for all of you, our community leaders, the many people affected by this illness and those who are in positions of care for those who are sick.

We will continue to monitor the situation as it pertains to PAM’s upcoming events. For now, we want to be supportive to you.  With that in mind there are several things we want to be sure you know:

  • We have added a page to the PAM website to provide resources to assist with your ever-changing needs. We will update it regularly.  You may find it here.

  • We will begin to host weekly Town Hall Forums as a place to ask questions, share ideas, pray, collaborate, be together.  The first Town Hall forum is Monday, March 23, at 2:00 p.m. EDT.  You may join for any part of the hour by clicking here. This week’s facilitator is Eric Wall, PAM’s President-Elect.

  • Your PAM Board representative is available to you for questions.  Their contact information is available here.

  • If you are connected to social media, please visit PAM’s social media pages and request to join the PAM Connect page on Facebook. PAM Connect is a forum for PAM members and friends of the organization to exchange ideas, ask questions, offer suggestions, and interact with other professionals in the worship and music community.

  • At this time, we expect to host the 2020 Worship & Music Conferences at Montreat June 21-27 and June 28 - July 3. We are in communication with Richard DuBose, President of Montreat Conference Center, and will continue to be in communication in the days and weeks ahead to be sure we are doing all we can to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of PAM.

  • Because the situation is changing daily, the Board has voted to eliminate the late-registration rate for the Worship & Music Conferences. The on-time registration rate will remain in place through June 20.

Thank you for your patience. Our prayers will continue to be with you, your churches, and your families.

With gratitude,

Kelly Abraham
Executive Director

David VanderMeer, CCM
Board President
