Dear CAMFT Members,
This year has brought many unknowns into our lives both personally and professionally. But one thing I know is this—the work we do at CAMFT to advocate for mental health improvements and to support our members in their efforts to help people heal is more important than ever.
In order for CAMFT to continue the work we do, we have to be strong, ethical stewards of our budgets and resources. Some of the biggest expenses for CAMFT include printing and mailing costs for official membership communications and annual election ballots. Earlier this year, you voted to pass changes in our Bylaws that will allow us to share official member communications electronically (like the Annual Business meeting notice), and will allow us to conduct our Board of Directors elections electronically. We are now launching CAMFT’s Go Green Initiative to put your vote into action.
Here’s where we need your help. To allow us to put your vote into action, we need each member’s approval to opt-in to receive official membership communications electronically, and to participate in our elections process electronically. We will be sending you an email soon, and we hope you will select ‘Yes’ to opt-in for electronic official membership communications and electronic voting. This is a win-win for CAMFT and for you, as member communications will be more efficient and the voting process will be easier and much more engaging. Going Green will save CAMFT tens of thousands of dollars per year—money that can be re-allocated to important CAMFT initiatives and member benefits. We’ll also be doing a huge service to our planet.
Please take a look at the short video I made that explains more about the benefits of this initiative. And please click ‘Yes’ to opt-in to both electronic official membership communications and electronic voting when you receive your email from CAMFT.
