Volunteer with CAMFT

Learn, Connect, Volunteer with CAMFT

Over the recent months, CAMFT has seen an emerging desire by members to have a say in the governance and future of CAMFT. Becoming a volunteer is the best way to get your opinions heard, learn more about the current CAMFT and future CAMFT, connect with fellow CAMFT members, develop your leadership skills, and become an integral part of the CAMFT community—all while making a difference in CAMFT. No matter what your talent, interest, or availability, there's an opportunity that is right for you! 

Are you interested in offering your leadership services to CAMFT? Membership on the CAMFT Board of Directors is exciting, challenging and demanding. It provides opportunities for deep community with your professional colleagues as you move along the mainstream and front line of our profession in California. If you are willing to embark on such a significant personal and professional journey, click here to download the CAMFT Board of Director Application Packet.

A way to get involved in the planning and governance of CAMFT, with less time commitment than the Board, is to become a part of a CAMFT Committee. Currently, we have the following CAMFT Committees: Annual Conference and Continuing Education Committee, Audit Committee, Bylaws Committee, Certified Supervisor Program Committee, Chapter Advisory Council, Continuing Education Provider Approval (CEPA) Committee, Educational Foundation Board of Directors Committee, Educational Foundation Scholarship Committee, Educational Foundation Strategic Planning Committee, Elections Committee, Ethics Committee, Finance Committee, Honors Committee, Legislative Committee, Nominating Committee, Political Action Committee, and Pre-Licensed Committee. To learn more about each Committee, please click here.

If you are interested in serving on a Committee, please send your resume and a letter of interest indicating the committee in which you are interested, and why you would make a great Committee member to Sarah Sanchez at ssanchez@camft.org. The call for applications for the 2022-2023 term will begin in February 2022. Committee appointments are made by the President of the Board of Directors.

Are you interested in volunteering in your local area? CAMFT has 28 chapters throughout California with lots of volunteer opportunities! These volunteer opportunities range from short-term to serving on a committee or board of directors. Click here to find information about a local chapter. Volunteering at the local level is a great way to network and get to know therapists and other professionals in your area.
