CAMFT Bylaws Process
About Us | Chapters | Advertising | Join
The CAMFT Bylaws are a set of regulations and standards enacted at CAMFT’s inception, over 50 years ago, that provide a framework for our operation and management. As is common for all associations and organizations, Bylaws should be reviewed and updated on a regular basis in order to keep up with the needs of the association and its members, as well as changes in law.
The Bylaws Committee spent many hours over the last few years reviewing the Bylaws document, and they identified hundreds of revisions to be addressed, both small and substantial. Because it would be a difficult and timely process to address all of these revisions at one time, in late 2019, the Bylaws Committee and CAMFT Board prioritized seven (7) amendments to present to the membership to address the most vital amendments in a timely fashion.
These seven (7) proposed amendments were put up for a vote in the spring of 2020, and the CAMFT membership voted to pass all proposed amendments.
CAMFT is working now to integrate these seven (7) passed amendments into an updated Bylaws document. The full updated Bylaws will be posted soon.

The following seven revisions were identified by the Bylaws Committee and the Board of Directors as prioritized amendments to be voted on by CAMFT members.
This is the red-lined version of the affected Bylaws sections. Note that the remaining revisions mentioned will be addressed at a future time.
