CAMFT Cancels Annual Conference

Due to mounting concerns regarding the COVID-19 coronavirus, CAMFT has made the decision to cancel our Annual Conference previously scheduled for April 30 – May 2, 2020. News from the World Health Organization and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention points to continued spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus throughout the country and the state of California.

The decision to cancel the conference was not made lightly. CAMFT deliberated over many days and consulted with other professional organizations that are also making difficult choices for the well-being of their memberships. In making this decision, CAMFT has resolved to be abundantly cautious and prioritize the health and safety of its members, speakers, vendors, and staff.

CAMFT remains committed to providing quality education for our members, and we are exploring alternative options at this time. We promise to keep you informed as we delve into possible online and distance platforms to offer additional continuing education opportunities.

We understand that many CAMFT members have already registered for the Annual Conference and made travel arrangements. We regret any inconvenience this cancellation has caused. Please read the below Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) for information regarding refunds, CE resources, and logistics for our Annual Membership Meeting.

Wishing everyone health and wellness.
