Happy October everyone! For this month’s message, I want to highlight two ways you can get involved with CAMFT: applying for the CAMFT Board of Directors and participating in our Go Green campaign.
I want to encourage everyone to consider applying for a position on the Board of Directors. Serving on the CAMFT Board is a great way to get involved and help shape the future of MFT practice in California. While serving on the Board, you’ll have opportunities to discuss policies and regulations that affect LMFTs, shape future priorities for CAMFT and the profession, and participate in important conversations with colleagues from around the state to guide the vision of CAMFT.
There are 6 positions currently open for the term beginning June 1, 2021:
CAMFT is always looking for Board members from diverse backgrounds across the state. Information about the application process is available here.
As we enter voting season, CAMFT is starting its Go Green campaign, spearheaded by CAMFT President Cathryn Leff. The recent Bylaws changes that CAMFT members overwhelmingly approved included two opportunities for CAMFT to run more efficiently—an option for members to receive electronic official membership communications and an option for members to vote electronically. We are launching the Go Green campaign, asking you, our members, to save money, protect resources, and create more organized and efficient operations. (NOTE: The Go Green campaign does Not impact how you receive The Therapist magazine.)
You can make a difference in the Go Green campaign! CAMFT will be sending an email soon titled “GO GREEN with CAMFT.” Please opt-in by selecting “YES” for electronic communications (like the Annual Business Meeting Notice) and “YES” for electronic voting. Saying YES to GOING GREEN means that:
Thank you for helping us with the Go Green initiative. And thank you for considering running for the Board of Directors. We need member involvement to keep CAMFT strong.
I hope that everyone has a safe and healthy October!

The CAMFT Certified Supervisor Program (CSP) goes above and beyond the BBS Requirements for Supervision. The skills needed to be an effective supervisor are different from the skills needed to be an effective clinician. The CAMFT Certified Supervisor Program provides the training you need to be fully prepared to guide clinicians-in-training. As a CAMFT Certified Supervisor, you have the opportunity to be recognized by potential supervisees and employers for your advanced training, and as a CAMFT member, you receive a discount when completing the program!

CAMFT is expanding our educational outreach initiative and connecting with MFT programs to provide education and support within the classroom. We have reached out to professors and training directors throughout the state. If you would like us to provide education and helpful resources to your program, please email CAMFT’s Educational Outreach Liaison at email@example.com to book a talk or for more information..
