CENNC has transitioned from a membership-driven organization to a Network comprised of interested individuals and institutions supporting the organization by registration fees when applicable. Registration fees collected, and any current monies collected from the former membership structure, are dedicated to the support of Network activities.
Current members should have received this notice from our former executive director:
Important news for members of the Clinical Ethics Network of North Carolina!
Funding and stability have always been and continue to be a challenge for ethics networks, such as CENNC, across the country. Because we want to assure the continuity of the growing network and valuable services it offers we we are planning to move the network out of its temporary home in MAHEC and into the ethics centers of its Founders: University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, Wake Forest University, Duke University, and East Carolina University. These institutions will provide administrative services for the network and manage the production of its educational programs, including conferences such as the ones held in the past two years in Greensboro and Asheville. Because the founding institutions will locate CENNC within their bioethics structure to be managed by existing staff, costs for administration will be modest. The GOOD NEWS is that in the future there will be no membership fee required for participation in the network! Existing funds from membership dues will be used to support CENNC’s annual conferences.
More information will be forthcoming soon as changes to CENNC’s infrastructure are made to accommodate this move. We believe these changes will secure the future of North Carolina’s ethics network.
Watch for an announcement about the next CENNC conference to be held in the spring of 2017!
