We are looking for new leaders for our chapter in 2022!
Opportunities to Create, Contribute, and Connect
It's that time again: We are ready to find the next team of leaders to take our chapter into its new phase of growth! The current team has worked hard for the past two years to put an infrastructure in place for a new way of operating virtually, and we have experienced a lot of success along with the challenges that the pandemic has brought to all. Right now, your Marin CAMFT chapter is asking you if now might be the time for you to step into an exciting and rewarding role as part of the non-profit Board of Directors. There are a variety of volunteer positions coming open as we head into 2022. Our organization is growing, and our dynamic programs are drawing participation from within the Marin clinical community and far beyond. It is an exciting time to be part of this community and we would love for you to take on a more prominent role!
All positions are two-year terms in order to provide stability and continuity to our chapter.
The term starts in January and runs for the calendar year.
The full Board meets on the second Friday of the month from 9am to 11am.
The Executive Board meets on the first Friday of the month at 9am.
We take time for check-ins at the beginning, as an opportunity for support and connection. We also try to be efficient with our meetings and adjourn early when we are able to get through the business of the day.
Most meetings take a break during the summer months, as we do with our CE programming.
Marin CAMFT members can access our Board Meetings page to see agendas and minutes over the past few years, to get a sense of the business that is conducted by the Board.
Here's a quick description of the positions available. If any of these spark your interest, contact Marin CAMFT President Adam Cohen at email@example.com
You will help guide the ship. You will lead the team of Board Members each month in addressing the needs of our members and our organization. You will help oversee and work closely with our Diversity committee, and will be the point person to interface and represent our chapter with State CAMFT. You will meet once a month with the Executive Board and once a month with the entire Board, with varying tasks in between. You will spend one year as the President and one year as the Past President.
You will attend all Board meetings and have the important task of being the scribe - publishing the agenda in advance of meetings, writing the minutes of each Board meeting, and keeping everyone on track.
You will lead the team that decides what events we host for our Marin CAMFT members. Everything from which trainings and workshops we offer in our Continuing Education program to social gatherings. You will meet quarterly with our Continuing Education Committee, and monthly with our Board. You'll have support in performing tasks such as website updates.
Community Services Director-At-Large
You will help oversee all the ways in which Marin CAMFT is involved in and supports our local community. You will oversee our community Trauma Response Team and Community Outreach team. You will meet once a month with the entire Board.
You'll help us get the word out! Want to make new connections in the community with health and well-being providers? Want to connect Marin CAMFT members with other business and professionals with whom we could have symbiotic relationships? Want to create or facilitate a special workshop for Marin CAMFT members to build various aspects of their practices? These are the kinds of projects you can support as Director of Marketing. It's a creative position that can increase your professional visibility. Opportunity to turn this into a Social Media Marketing role too! You'll have admin support for website updates and projects.
Designated for a pre-licensed member of the chapter, the Pre-Licensed DAL helps spearhead all chapter initiatives and programming that serves our pre-licensed members.
