"The election of the Reverends Davis and Bass-Riley to the CAPPT Board marks two significant additions to an already impressive group of educators and and program administrators," stated Brian H. Childs, Chair of the CAPPT Board of Trustees. "Ms. Davis brings years of seminary field work education at Princeton and also her work prior to going to Princeton as a hospital chaplain. Mr Bass-Riley is a seasoned supervisor of Clinical Pastoral Education/Training and a well known and respected leader in the field. The programs that CAPPT review for accreditation and those they serve will be the beneficiaries of the addition of these two good people."
