Hello esteemed MCCAMFT members, During the summer months, our fearless leaders have been brainstorming, gathering feedback, and charting the course for our chapter’s future. Now, with enthusiasm, we are geared up to charge ahead through the rest of the year and beyond.

A huge thanks to those of you who already shared your feedback by filling out the “Planning for 2024” survey. Your input fuels the heart of our chapter, and we are here to champion your voices and ideas. If you haven’t had the chance to complete the survey yet, no worries! You can still share your thoughts HERE.

Our fall speaker season is opening up with a bang on September 10th with Part Two of our Narrative Therapy Salon presented by Chad Dispenza, MA, MS & Brian Wainwright, MS, LMFT. We are happy to have the two of them back to share their knowledge and offer their hospitality. Space is limited, so please don’t hesitate to register. We will then invite our long time member, Tricia Lara, LMFT, to share her expertise on Autism, ADHD and Mental health at our first luncheon of the year on October 6th. We will be back at our old stomping ground, the Hilton Garden Inn, as they reopen their doors after a long renovation. On October 27th, we will be back on Zoom for our annual Law & Ethics webinar so you all can fill up on the required L&E CEs. The all day virtual workshop will include 6 CEs and will be open for registration very soon.

Now, here’s your chance to shine! We are on the lookout for members who want to hone their leadership skills while serving our chapters needs. There are many opportunities to contribute to the chapter including stepping into a role on our Board of Directors. Open positions include President-Elect, Treasurer Elect, Secretary, Hospitality Chair, and Pre-licensed 3,000 hour Club chair. If you’re poised to embrace a leadership role and provide fresh perspectives, this is your moment. The perks of joining our Board of Directors are as follows.

Exclusive invite to the annual CAMFT Leadership conference (check it out HERE)

    • A chance to collaborate closely with a team of dedicated professionals
    • A Platform to showcase your skills, creativity, and innovative spirit
    • Opportunity to hone your communication and leadership skills
    • Free MC-CAMFT Membership & 1 FREE Annual C.E. Event

Lastly, a heartfelt shout out to each one of you, our members of MCCAMFT, for helping us revive and lift up the chapter after a near dissolution at the end of last year. The chapter is worth fighting for, and remains a valued entity in the Monterey Bay Area. We Love MCCAMFT! 

Warm regards,

Amy Snyder, LMFT
