Vote on Becoming an Independent Organization: 

May 25 to June 7 

The East Bay CAMFT Chapter (EBC) Board voted 4 to 1, with one abstention, at its May 19, 2017 meeting:

The EBC Board recommends to the membership that the organization terminate its Chapter Agreement with CAMFT and become an independent organization. A termination of the Chapter’s relationship with CAMFT will not in any way affect an EBC member’s individual membership in CAMFT. Membership in the local renamed organization will continue uninterrupted, as well.

YES:   Jurgen Braungardt, Claire-Elizabeth DeSophia, Galina Litvin, Sean Peterson

NO:    Don Mathews

ABSTAIN:  Ben Jones

A pro and con discussion of this matter, and background documents, can be found below. We encourage everyone to vote on this important matter.

Voting Ballots will be sent out in a separate email.

For Psychotherapists

We are an association of licensed and pre-licensed Marriage and Family Therapists (MFTs) and mental-health professionals with related licenses. We are dedicated to supporting one another's professional lives through opportunities for continuing education, networking, consultation, social connection, increasing public awareness of who we are and what we offer, and participating in legislative efforts to advance our profession.

East Bay CAMFT serves its members as a comprehensive source of quality information and training for best practices that include the most current clinical, marketing and business practices; and a compelling on-line presence for professionals and the public. It is our aim to be known for extensive community building and networking.

East Bay CAMFT is an efficient and transparent organization that uses its financial resources for maximum benefit to its members. The East Bay CAMFT Board encourages its members to be involved and contribute to their profession through participation in its working committees, its on- line newsletter, and its programs for the membership and the public. And finally, because of the way we conduct our chapter, East Bay CAMFT is a model that provides leadership to our parent organization, CAMFT, and to other state and national organizations."
