The 2023-2024 Nominating Committee Slate of Candidates
Qualified leadership is essential to CAMFT’s success. In the exciting years ahead, it is the elected leadership that will shape the future policies and programs of the Association.
In accordance with the Bylaws of the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists, the Nominating Committee called for applications from our members and interviewed all prospective nominees. Following the interviews, the Nominating Committee has selected those candidates who, in their judgment, best meet the qualifications to effectively serve as Board Members of CAMFT. The Nominating Committee has put forward the following slate:
Candidates Added by Petition
CAMFT Bylaws (Article VI, Section C), provides that “any person who is eligible to be elected to the Board of Directors may be included on the ballot by petition. Said petitions shall be delivered to an officer of the Association no later than sixty (60) days prior to the date of election. To be valid, signatures on the petition shall be made within eleven (11) months preceding the next time directors will be elected by members representing at least two (2%) percent of the applicable voting power.” Clinical members must submit a petition with a minimum of 465 signatures. (This number represents 2% of the applicable voting membership on April 1, 2022.) Pre-Licensed members must submit a petition with a minimum of 191 signatures. (This number represents 2% of the applicable voting membership on April 1, 2022.) Petitions with all signatures must be submitted to the CAMFT Administrative office by 4:30 pm on Monday, January 16, 2023. Apply by Petition.
