Nominations for the 2020
Board of Directors
Starting in September
It’s that time again for Board of Director nominations and we need your participation. Being a member of the Desert CAMFT Board is a rewarding way to serve your colleagues and community. By becoming involved in the goings-on of the chapter, you get to have your voice heard, have the opportunity to network, and to feel part of something bigger than yourself.
Only with participation from our members can we have a thriving chapter, so we are requesting that you step-up and join us in this endeavor. You do not need to be nominated by someone else. Feel free to nominate yourself or just let us know that you are interested in serving. If you are nominated by someone else, we will confirm with you that you are willing and able to accept the nomination.
The following Board of Director positions are open for the year 2020:
Marketing & Community Outreach
3000 Club Chair
Social Media Chair
We can also always use and appreciate the support of other board and committee members to help out with events or other miscellaneous tasks. Please contact us if you’re interested in helping out.
We need your help to make our chapter thrive. We have great workshops coming up at our monthly meetings, as well as special longer workshops. We have a talented Board of Directors and we are doing everything possible to provide interesting, educational workshops with opportunities to network.
However, we need your help to keep this chapter thriving. We need more subcommittees, committee directors and teams, some new officers and support. Help us to help you have the most rewarding experience as a member of Desert CAMFT.
Please contact Carol Teitelbaum with any questions at 760-219- 2465.

We often practice in isolation and need the opportunity to consult with others and gain support. These groups offer an ongoing forum for case consultation with a variety of other experienced therapists in your area. We envision each group with a limit of eight therapists, with the "host" at each site setting the schedules.
If you would like to host a group in the desert, please

We organize multiple events throughout the year, including CE workshops, by both local members and outside presenters, as well as social networking events. These are important occasions for our professionals to participate in, to stay up-to-date on the latest information in our field and maintain an interactive referral network. So, take a look at our upcoming and past events here. We also welcome any new ideas for possible future events.
Desert CAMFT is a local chapter of the larger state organization, the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists (CAMFT)*. Like many local chapters, Desert CAMFT was formed to create a more intimate, localized, and accessible community of Marriage and Family Therapists for the purposes of networking, professional development, and career support.
