    SF CAMFT/Prop 8/CAMFT/E-tree issues

    Prop 8 was discussed at length, and reviewed answers to Marriage Equality Questionnaire. Board moved

    to make a statement, which is the following: “The East Bay CAMFT Board is staking a stance in support

    of marriage equality for same sex couples. We believe that this issue is integral to both our mission and

    the mission of CAMFT. We urge CAMFT to take a stand in favor of this critical issue, and to that end we

    recommend that CAMFT form a task force to articulate a formal position in favor of marriage equality

    for all.” K.Sue found facilitators for the forum, and recommended forum to coincide with Spring Social.

    E-tree was also discussed at length, and guidelines were reviewed. Explored the gray zone of the

    guidelines, where clarity on what is allowed and not allowed may be clearer. For example: difference

    between discussion about political issues, and links to petitions; and non-members having members list

    items, instead have non-members join EB CAMFT. Overall, consensus was that E-tree manager was

    doing an amazing job.

    Board’s decision. Follow-up with E-tree manager to explore areas not clear with guidelines. Identify

    exceeded the budget for this workshop. They were also concerned about

    possible competition as Michelle noted that Berkeley offers this training as well,

    and the Santa Clara CAMFT chapter recently advertised it as well. The board

    would like the TRN committee to provide more information regarding competition,

    possible other speakers, and more detailed budget plan.
