Event Information and Policies
CAMFT In-Person Meeting Requirement
Our top priority for all in-person meetings is the safety and welfare of our attendees and team. CAMFT recognizes that after nearly three years, California has started down the path toward the end of the declared COVID-19 State of Emergency. In recognition of this change and in response to updated guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), CAMFT is updating its in-person meetings policy for 2023.CAMFT will continue to follow the strictest guidelines established by the facility hosting the event, the county department of public health in which the event is located, and/or the State of California. This policy is subject to change as public health guidelines evolve. Registrants must agree to a Personal Responsibility & Liability Waiver when registering for a meeting or event. If there is a change to the public health guidelines that materially impacts attendees, CAMFT will communicate any changes to this policy to attendees via e-mail, our website, and at the event itself.
