    Hello MC-CAMFT Chapter Members! We have kicked off this year with some really enriching socializing and networking. It was wonderful to see both familiar and new faces at our New Year gathering at Tarpy’s. It was a really lovely time, and I was grateful that the weather cooperated with us, so that we had the option to gather outside. I have so missed seeing all of you, and it was just delightful! Following our New Year gathering, we held our virtual New Member Gathering hosted by Olivia Stadler. This event occurred just last week. We collectively welcomed new members to our chapter, and then we had the opportunity to catch up with one another to share both personal and professional updates. Again, it was simply a fun and delightful evening!

    I want to highlight a few ways that you are invited to be recognized and actively involved in our Chapter. First of all, the Member Spotlight is back! Our Member Spotlight includes a photo and write up by a chapter member highlighting his/her/their work in the community. The Member Spotlight appears in the newsletter and on the website. If you are interested in being in the spotlight, all you need to do is send a headshot and a writeup to Ross Farley III, and he will add you into the rotation. You can contact Ross at:

    We are also bringing back our Member Salons! Our Hospitality Chair, Olivia, is taking the lead on organizing Member Salons. Member Salons are more informal gatherings where members of our chapter can share about a topic of interest/expertise. These are sometimes CE gatherings, and sometimes are more themed discussions/explorations. Salons are a great way to “dip your toe” into the waters of teaching with low pressure and a supportive audience. Salons are also a more intimate way to connect with your colleagues over a common topic of interest. If you are curious about offering a Member Salon, please contact Olivia:

    Lastly, if you are interested in being actively involved in the Chapter, but are hesitant to take on too much of a commitment, then we have a couple of ways you can do so:

    1) Become a Hospitality Committee Member- Olivia is looking for helpers to assist her in organizing more salons and networking/social type events.

    2) Become a Nominations Committee Member- We need people who are good at spotting talent, and who like connecting connecting with others to proactively proactively obtain nominations nominations for board positions positions that need to be filled. If this is of interest to you, please reach out to Carmen Martin:

    One final note, the easiest easiest way to be active in our Chapter Chapter is to attend our events! events! The next one is coming up on March 25, 2022. If you haven’t registered yet, make sure you do so! All of the details about Barbara Easterlin’s Climate Psychology in Clinical Practice talk are in this newsletter.

    May you be well,

    Jennifer Farley
