CAMFT Board Application Packet 

Dear Member:

Thank you for your interest in running for a position on the CAMFT Board of Directors. We appreciate your willingness to volunteer your leadership services to CAMFT.

Membership on the CAMFT Board of Directors is exciting, challenging, and demanding. It provides the opportunity to shape the organization while fostering deep community with your professional colleagues. The CAMFT Board is a “governing” board. A governing board helps create the vision, mission, values, and policies for the organization and ensures that the principles and finances are properly respected. (The Board, itself, does not actively run programs and services.)

According to the CAMFT Bylaws, Article VI, Section C(2), to be eligible to serve on the 2017-2018 Board as President-elect, Secretary or Board Director-at-Large, you must have been a voting member of CAMFT since at least 2015.

As a Board member, you will be expected to attend four (4) quarterly meetings.  You will also be expected to represent the Board at the early winter 2017 Chapter Leadership Conference and at the 2017 Annual Conference, and attend “CAMFT Connects” and Chapter meetings as needed. You will be expected to interact with the local offices of your state and federal legislators to educate the legislators and staff about the work of LMFTs and CAMFT. Finally, you will be expected to adhere to and sign the CAMFT Conflict of Interest Policy, the Anti-Trust Compliance Policy, a Consent to ElectronicTransmission, and an Agreement of Confidentiality . You will be invited to attend the May 4 - 7, 2017 Annual Conference as a guest of the current Board.

Please review the following documents as you consider Board service:

In order to be considered by the nominating Committee, you must submit a complete application by close of Business on Friday, October 28, 2016. If you plan, instead to have your name on the ballot by petition (instead of by nomination), please see the petition guidelines .

If you have questions, please contact Jill Epstein at jepstein@camft.org.  If you would like to attend a board meeting as a guest to observe the process, please see the 2016 - 2017 Board Meeting schedule .

Thank you, again, for your interest in serving CAMFT!

Sincerely,

CAMFT Nominating Committee
