NCPEA - National Committee for the Prevention of Elder Abuse

2014 NCPEA Members!

December 2014



Dear NCPEA 2014 Members,


Thank you for your membership and support of the National Committee for the Prevention of Elder Abuse (NCPEA) in 2014.  NCPEA continues to provide a unique multidisciplinary platform for professional development, advocacy, networking, and research on elder abuse and neglect.


NCPEA membership runs on the calendar year, so it is now time to renew your membership for 2015 (if you have not already done so).  

NCPEA is proud to serve as your national network, and to amplify your voice within the field of elder abuse. Supporting this role, NCPEA connected with our members this past year and currently continues to connect with them in many different ways, including those listed below. 

  • In 2014, members came together for our annual meeting in Washington DC, and in virtual project and committee meetings, and shared online workspaces.
  • NCPEA (in cooperation with the International Network for the Prevention of Elder Abuse) convened the Abuse, Neglect, and Exploitation of Elderly Persons Interest Group of the Gerontological Society of America, providing members and others with the ability to share ideas and information related to research, policy, and practice through an annual meeting, which this year included a very informative panel on financial exploitation, sponsored a well-received symposium on polyvictimization in later life, and sponsored a listserv.
  • NCPEA continued its work on a grant from the federal Office for Victims of Crime developing a training curriculum on polyvictimization in later life and related products.  Numerous presentations on this project work were made at national conferences attended by many NCPEA members.
  • Institutional and coalition members are listed and linked on the NCPEA website,
  • All members can locate each other through the online member directory in the members-only section of the website:
  • NCPEA welcomes member news and announcements and disseminates these through our various public communications.  
  • All NCPEA members are welcome to join and collaborate through our committees.  NCPEA's Public Policy Committee continues to collaborate with the Elder Justice Coalition and inform members of relevant emerging policy and legislation. Our Program and Education Committee continues to provide training opportunities on issues of particular interest to NCPEA members and work on development of a syllabus on elder abuse and neglect for universities. The NAPSA-NCPEA Research Committee reviews and supports research to inform the field and work closely with the National APS Resource Center, and in 2014 a NCPEA Research Committee was added to the active standing committees. The Board and Membership Development Committee continued its work to expand NCPEA membership and insure appropriate benefits are offered.
  • In 2014, member activities tied into NCPEA's grant-funded work with the federal HHS Administration on Aging — the  National Center on Elder Abuse, run by UC-Irvine, and the National APS Resource Center, run by NAPSA.

Additional NCPEA membership benefits include:

  • An annual subscription to the Journal of Elder Abuse & Neglect (JEAN) (now published five times a year)
  • 15% discount on educational videos and films from Terra Nova Films 
  • Reduced member rates on NCPEA educational seminars, webinars, and conferences
  • Discounts on NCPEA publications and training materials 

You can renew your NCPEA membership at the 2014 rates if you act now. You may update your membership by mailing in the attached form or renewing online at  Your information is already in the system – just go to the MEMBERS tab, log in and press “RENEW TODAY” (a menu item on the top of the page, next to “calendar”).  (if you need a login reminder, check your membership confirmation letter, or contact:

We are grateful that many members already make an annual donation to NCPEA beyond their membership dues. Donations support our core operations and allow us to respond flexibly to member interests and changes in the field. We ask you, if possible, to consider becoming a sponsor-level member, or adding a contribution to your dues payment. 

We appreciate your NCPEA membership, and look forward to continued work together in 2015.



Best Regards,

Trudy Gregorie
