Coronavirus (COVID-19) and the UCAP Salt Lake City 2020 Conference

POSTPONED
 

 

Updated March 16, 2020

 

The UCAP board has agreed that rather than doing a virtual version of the conference, we would like to host the same conference we have planned, once the crisis has passed.  The timing remains to be seen, but we would like to invite all of you to attend the rescheduled conference, whenever that might be. We are sorry for the inconvenience. As everyone is, we are hoping to see the world get back to normal soon.  We will begin processing full refunds for conference registrations over the next few days.

Today Utah’s governor, Gary Herbert, recommended that all gatherings of more than 100 people be suspended for the next two weeks. As of now, the UCAP conference is postponed. Check back here for more details. 

 

Updated March 5, 2020

 

The UCAP Board of Directors is closely monitoring the developing coronavirus (COVID-19) situation. We are thoughtfully considering various scenarios that may unfold between now and the conference date.

 

UCAP is committed to the health and safety of our members, partners, and event attendees, as well as to making decisions based on available evidence and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), and the Utah COVID-19 Community Task Force.

 

We will post updates to this site as new information becomes available, including a list of onsite measures UCAP is planning for a healthier conference, and how attendees can help.

Opening Keynote Speaker:

Sharon Eubank

President, Latter-day Saint Charities

Having Practical Conversations About Pornography that Reduce Shame and Bring Help

Ever wondered how to broach the subject of pornography with your kids, your spouse, your fiancé, your school, your legislator? Silence and isolation give it too much power. Come hear practical advice and real-life stories about families tackling pornography without shame. Explore resources from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints about having meaningful conversations with the people you love, in the communities where you live.

Sharon Eubank serves as president of Latter-day Saint Charities, an organization which responds to natural disasters, conflict displacement, food insecurity, the health and safety of children and challenges for persons with disabilities. Additionally, in 2017, Ms. Eubank was appointed to the Relief Society general presidency of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Closing Keynote Speaker:

Collin Kartcher

Save the Kids

The #1 way kids today are first being exposed to pornography is not on pornography websites– but on social media apps like Instagram, Snapchat, TikTok and video games. Recent research done by Collin shows these apps target porn to kids to hook the next generations of users. Still, parents continue to hand their children untethered access to smart phones at a younger and younger age. Handing children smart phones is like handing them a venomous snake. How then are parents getting mad when their kid gets bit? Our culture of shaming must end, and parents need to wake up to the long-term damage unmonitored smart phone access will have on their children.

Collin Kartchner is a social activist raising awareness of social media’s effect on teen mental health. He travels the country speaking to kids, parents, educators and more on the connection between social media and screen addiction, on the epidemic rise in teen anxiety, depression, and suicidality.
