CLC2020 2020 Chapter Leadership Conference

CLC attendees


The CAMFT Leadership Conference brings together over 100 chapter leaders from our 28 chapters across the state to network with colleagues and attend workshops geared towards the successful maintenance and growth of a chapter.


The New Chapter Leader Orientation session is a great opportunity for new leaders to learn how CAMFT can help support you in your chapter role. The reception following is a great opportunity to meet and network with your colleagues. We encourage chapters to send multiple board members, since sessions and topics are geared towards all board positions/roles.

CAMFT will be recognizing chapters and chapter leaders for their 2019 accomplishments and achievements at the Leadership Conference on Saturday, February 22, 2020.

The Outstanding Chapter LEADER Award is presented to one member of each chapter for exemplary service and commitment. This individual is nominated by their entire chapter board, so please designate only one nominee per chapter.

The Chapter EXCELLENCE Award is presented to chapter boards. There are five (5) categories: Best Chapter Management, Best Marketing Practices, Best Community Involvement and Outreach, Best Membership Development, and Best Financial Management. Award recipients will receive a $250 stipend.

New this year: We have made changes to the Chapter awards that will give small, medium, and large sized chapters the opportunity to compete in their own categories. There will be up to 15 awards, compared to 5 last year.

Each of the five (5) award categories are available for a chapter with a small (1-100), medium (101-250), or large (251+) membership. Therefore, you are ALL encouraged to consider nominating your chapter.

Applications/Nominations:Due by Friday, January 3, 2020.
