The 2019-2020 Nominating Committee Slate of Candidates
Qualified leadership is essential to CAMFT’s success. In the exciting years ahead, it is the elected leadership that will shape the future policies and programs of the Association.

In accordance with the Bylaws of the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists, the Nominating Committee called for applications from our members and interviewed all prospective nominees. Following the interviews, the Nominating Committee has selected those candidates who, in their judgment, best meet the qualifications to effectively serve as Board Members of CAMFT. Given the number of qualified applicants who submitted applications, most of the positions are contested races. The Nominating Committee has put forward the following slate:
