Conflict of Interest

CAMFT Policy


Accepted: January 17, 1986
Revised: March 9, 2012
Revised: June 8, 2014

Board members have a fiduciary duty to conduct themselves without conflict to the interests of CAMFT. In their capacity as Board members, they must subordinate personal, individual business, financial, third-party, and other interests to the welfare and best interests of CAMFT. The duty of confidentiality continues even after Board service has ended.

A conflict of interest is a transaction or relationship which presents or may present a conflict between a Board member’s obligations to CAMFT and the Board member’s personal, business, or other interests.

All conflicts of interest are not necessarily prohibited or harmful to CAMFT. However, full disclosure of all actual, potential, and perceived conflicts, and a determination by the disinterested Board members—with the interested Board member(s) recused from participating in debates and voting on the matter—are required.

All actual, potential, and perceived conflicts of interests shall be disclosed by Board members to the Board President and Executive Director whenever a conflict arises. The Board President and Executive Director shall make a determination as to whether a conflict exists and what subsequent action is appropriate (if any). The Board President and Executive Director shall inform the Board of such determination and action. The Board shall retain the right to modify or reverse such determination and action, and shall retain the ultimate enforcement authority with respect to the interpretation and application of this policy.

On an annual basis, all Board members shall be provided with a copy of this policy and required to complete and sign the acknowledgment below. All completed forms shall be provided to and reviewed by the Executive Director, as well as all other conflict information provided by Board members.

This policy shall apply not only to all members of the CAMFT Board of Directors, but also shall apply to all members of CAMFT committees, task forces, and others in the CAMFT governance structure, as well as to all CAMFT employees. All references herein to the Board of Directors shall be construed also to refer to these additional individuals.


I have read the CAMFT Board Conflict of Interest Policy set forth above and agree to comply fully with its terms and conditions at all times during my service as a CAMFT Board member. If at any time following the submission of this form I become aware of any actual or potential conflicts of interest, or if the information provided below becomes inaccurate or incomplete, I will promptly notify the Board President and Executive Director in writing.
