Dear Member,

As part of our effort to revitalize the San Fernando Valley chapter of CAMFT (SFV-CAMFT) and move forward following over a year of being apart, we invite you to apply to serve on the Board of Directors for the term year January - December 2022.

Our mission “is dedicated to inspiring psychotherapists through educational opportunities, networking, and support in order to better serve the community where we practice and live.” Joining the Board is a wonderful opportunity to contribute to this goal, obtain valuable leadership experience, grow your professional network, and make connections that will last your entire career.

As current Board Members, we wanted to share why we choose to serve:

  • “I serve because I love helping and supporting other therapists and professionals and want to represent the Latinx population in our community.” – Mishka Kimball
  • I serve on the board of SFV-CAMFT to inspire and be inspired in return. It helps me embrace new perspectives and take on a leadership role that helps me grow personally and professionally.” – Natalie Jambazian
  • “I serve because supporting marriage and family therapists is integral to my professional self.” – Nikki Gabriel
  • “I serve because I want to give back to the community that helped me become a licensed marriage and family therapist.” – Shari Manculich
  • “I serve because I value connection - with myself and other therapists who inspire my growth - as well as giving our community a voice.” – Gina Balit

Board nominations and elections are held in October each year, and we are seeking candidates from diverse backgrounds, who are ready to “roll up their sleeves” to help the SFV-CAMFT pursue critical goals, in the following roles:

  • CFO
  • Pre-licensed Representative
  • President
  • President-Elect
  • Secretary
  • Vice President Marketing and Communications
  • Vice President of Membership
  • Vice President of Programs
  • Board Member-at-Large (3 available)

Need incentives? Starting in 2022, all current board members will have free registration for all regular meetings, and all members serving as President will be given a lifetime chapter membership once the term of Past President is completed.

Think you’re not Board material? Let us help you overcome those barriers! 

  1. I haven’t been in practice that long. That is OK. New clinicians bring new ideas and build referrals through professional networking and connections. Serving on the Board cements these relationships. MFT’s help each other! 
  2. I don’t think of myself as an expert clinician. That is OK, too. SFV-CAMFT helps build your expertise over time through education and networking. We are not seeking experts; we are seeking energy and enthusiasm.
  3. I’m so busy. Please know that the Board is mindful of this. However, we hope that you might view this as a unique way to invest your time in your career development and to give back to our profession. 

Applications will be considered on a rolling basis until Saturday, July 31, 2021. Please submit your application by clicking on the link below. Membership in SFV-CAMFT is required for an application to be considered. Please email applications to Mishka Kimball, President.
