CAMFT Board Members at Chapter Events
Proposed: February 24, 2015
Accepted: March 13, 2015
Revised: June 6, 2015
The following guidelines delineate the duties and responsibilities associated
with a Board member’s role, acting in the capacity of a CAMFT Ambassador,
with chapter leaders and members at regional meetings and events:
- In an Ambassador capacity, a Board member may visit chapters for the
purpose of generating feedback for CAMFT to better serve the chapters, and
stronger ties between members and the Association.
- In the course of a Board member’s attendance at a chapter meeting or
event in the capacity of an Ambassador, CAMFT can provide a list of talking points
on announcements to deliver at the request of the Board member. A Board member
should not speak on behalf of the Association on any matters that are not in
the best interests of CAMFT, should not speak against an action of the Board,
nor lead any chapter audience member to reasonably believe that the Board member’s
subjective beliefs or opinions are endorsed or held by the Association itself.
- The Board member may and should posit him or herself as a CAMFT liaison
and Ambassador, and is encouraged to provide feedback to CAMFT Board and
member questions, concerns, and comments.
- Nothing in this policy prohibits a Board member from attending a chapter
meeting or event in a non-Board member capacity.
