AGENDA ITEM 1A, MINUTES OF MAY 6, 2005

A motion was made and seconded to approve the minutes as written. The motion passed.


AGENDA ITEM 1B, INTRODUCTIONS

The Board welcomed Gillaan Yates, who has agreed to coordinate the Law and Ethics workshop for

2006. Annie Bailey noted that she will meet on June 24 with all the volunteers working on

educational activities to establish a committee that coordinate/consults on these events.


AGENDA ITEM 2, GOALS AND VISION

The Board reviewed progress on the 2005 goals. (Separate document.) The major item still in

progress is finding someone who wants to be Volunteer Coordinator for the Chapter. A “welcome”

social for new members is still in the planning stages. Melissa Johnson will contact the Social

Chairs and ask that they consider using the new office for this event. Christa Sharkey will follow up

with the person interested in the Legislative Liaison position. Mary Ashby reported that she will fill

the Web Manager position and hopes to find a replacement for her secretarial duties as soon as

possible.


AGENDA ITEM 3, OFFICE MANAGER REPORT

Harriet Hanauer reported that she is pleased with the new office – a major improvement over the

previous facility – and again thanked all those who helped with the move. Harriet reminded the

Board that the office is available for committee meetings.

Harriet noted that our current membership is 752, compared with 744 at this time last year. There

has been an increase in intern members (172 versus 134), but a decrease in clinical members (513

versus 537).


AGENDA ITEM 4, TREASURER’S REPORT

Mary Ashby reported for Victoria Stiefvater-Roffers, Treasurer, that the Chapter now has a credit

card for the Office Manager’s and President’s use in expediting purchases. Victoria and Annie will

meet next week to arrange interviews with Bookkeeper candidates. The Finance Committee will

meet June 13 to continue discussing ways to minimize the impact of the new office’s increased rent.

Brenda Ponthier suggested that we might make the new office available, for a fee, to people offering

small workshops.


AGENDA ITEM 5, SF CAMFT WORKSHOP AD

Steve Toby reported that SF CAMFT had contacted him about advertising one of their workshops on

our e-tree and in our newsletter, stating that SF CAMFT would be willing to do the same for us.

Steve referred this issue to Pamela Lister, Advertising Manager. Harriet Hanauer noted that we’ve

had a past practice of quid-pro-quo ads with other chapters. Annie noted that the CAMFT website

lists CEU opportunities.


AGENDA ITEM 6, PAYPAL

Steve Toby and Harriet Hanauer will meet with Infolane, our information-services provider, next

week to discuss how to link a PayPal account with our website so that members can do the entire

renewal process (including payment) online. They will also discuss the possibility of signing up for

and paying for workshops online.


AGENDA ITEM 7, VOLUNTEER COORDINATOR

Annie Bailey reported that there will be an article in the next newsletter, asking for people interested

in filling this position. Annie has also sent a message to the e-tree. Mary Ashby noted that, for a

number of years, the Chapter had surveyed members’ interests at the time of their renewals. Mary

will give Christa a copy of the past surveys to consider using this year.


AGENDA ITEM 8, AGING WORKSHOP

Annie Bailey reported that projected attendance is less than expected. Although we prefer to have a

net income on these events, offering this required course is a benefit to Chapter members, even if we

only break even.


AGENDA ITEM 9, DIVERSITY WORKSHOP

Brenda Ponthier reported (via notes from Gil Sheperd) that this committee is still planning a seminar

that will likely be held in 2006. The committee wants to focus on how therapists can work with

diverse clients.

Brenda also noted that the Committee welcomes articles for the newsletter’s “Diversity Corner.”

This feature has limited space, but in the case of a longer article, a referral to our website for the full

text is recommended.


AGENDA ITEM 10, OTHER COMMITTEE REPORTS

Mary Ashby learned from Marge Riley that Cynthia Pastor is now the new chair for the Diablo

Satellite meetings. Annie Bailey will call Cynthia to welcome her.

EBCC continues their referral service and has no news to report.

Martha Jimenez-Rosales said that she has begun contacting those interns, who send requests through

the e-tree, to offer her services via the Chapter. Other ideas for addressing interns’ needs include:

visiting Bay Area graduate programs in the fall, sending a welcome letter to interns from Martha,

hold a meeting specifically for interns.

The Board agreed that the Chapter should invite CAMFT members who live in our area, but do not

belong to our Chapter, to join the Chapter. Steve Toby will update our current brochure, and Harriet

Hanauer will order labels from CAMFT to send information to these members via mail.


AGENDA ITEM 11, BOARD ACTION ITEMS

The Board reviewed the most recent list of action items, removing those completed or no longer

relevant. Steve Toby will design an EB-CAMFT business card for Board and other Chapter

members to have available for distribution to potential members or to people interested in Chapter

services.


AGENDA ITEM 12, MISCELLANEOUS

No items.

The meeting was adjourned.

The next meetings will be from 4-6:00 at the EB-CAMFT office on the following Fridays:

July 22

September 9

October 14
