    Approval of Consent Agenda

    Ellen moved to approve the consent agenda as modified. It was seconded and passed. In

    addition, it was moved and passed that we spend $545.00 to rent a space for the CAMFT

    Town Hall meeting.

    Old Business

    1. Phone Messages Coverage: Evan states he is willing to continue for another

    month.

    2. Website Hosting: David Hillstrom’s wife passed away, plan is to send a card and

    flowers or potted plant. David Leong reported on his research into other

    companies. He reported that if we get on a standard package we could put it

    anywhere (into another host). One site he looked into would cost $1600.00 to start

    and then $15.00 per month thereafter. He is going to do more research on this and

    look into other companies and report back.

    3. Office Update: K.Sue reported that most of the files were cleaned out, now we

    need to decide if we are going to donate the furniture. We could donate the

    furniture and shredder to a non-profit. Joe and Guillermo did fix the computer

    which we could save for company business. We will have to decide if we are

    going to keep the fax and copier.

    New Business

    1. Update on Town Hall meeting w/ CAMFT: It is set for August 21 from 6:15pm

    to 8:45pm. It is being held in Berkeley on Allston near the Bart station. We need

    a membership list and phone call campaign.

    2. SF CAMFT resolution: They met and voted to being a part of the bylaws, but not

    part of CAMFT. They meant this to portray themselves as conscientious

    objectors to Camft’s stand on Marriage Equality. The chapter understands that

    CAMFT will revoke their charter, but they will be able to state their stance on

    Marriage Equality at Hearing that is allowed after revocation of a chapter.

    3. Diablo Satellite CE: Danielle had left in June and her replacement moved 2 days

    later. The ceu programs have all ready been planned for September and October,

    but we do need someone to chair the Diablo Satellite. It is possible that Andrea

    can fill in until one is found. Nadesdye will check with her and Ellen can help in

    October.

    4. Board Positions: Guillermo states he wants feedback from the board within the

    next two weeks about whether board members are interested in staying on the

    board next year. We discussed combining the intern rep position with the intern

    mentoring position.

    5. Survey of Board/planning session: Discussion about results of survey. We

    decided our next meeting on September 17 will be at the Hudson Office from

    3:00-7:00pm and we will have a potluck dinner.

    6. Nominations Committee: We talked about benefits as board members and the

    necessity of retaining them to encourage volunteers. It is always best to be asked

    to serve on the board; we all are going to talk with our colleagues about board

    service. It was decided as well that our presence at ceu meetings is important to

    encourage participation on board.

    7. Evan presented his proposal about a Mentoring panel: The consensus is the

    interns would like a panel of licensed MFT’s to discuss with them their own story

    of the licensing process and coping methods. The date and time for this panel

    should not conflict with ceu classes, it will be decided upon at the next meeting.

    8. Other Ceu classes: In response to a need expressed to have ceu meetings farther

    east, Nadesdye was wondering about having a meeting at Chapman or even at

    Hudson. Nadesdye will check into the feasibility with Chapman and DVC and

    Guillermo will discuss with Hudson management.

    The meeting was adjourned at 6:00pm.

    and committee for their efforts.

    2. Law and Ethics Conference: Everything is moving along for the conference. An

    of the Etree and found the October 2007 minutes stated that third party postings

    were approved by a 64/32 vote from members. There was a motion that we

    continue to allow third party postings since they were approved by the

    membership in 2007. The motion was seconded and passed.

    also. The issue was tabled.

    The president reported that she had a conversation with the executive director of

    CAMFT about how members can let the state hear their grievances and the

    executive director offered to have a meeting with EBCAMFT membership. The

    Therapist issue has been pulled from the CAMFT website. There is a petition

    being circulated that will be sent to CAMFT board of directors.

    One of the visiting members wondered why CAMFT does not take a position.

    Another would like to see a poll on how other chapters in the state feel about the

    issue regarding discrimination and homophobia.

    A great deal of discussion followed and we talked about the next steps. A motion

    was made to invite the executive director and president of the CAMFT Board to

    an open forum with members of EBCAMFT . It was seconded and passed and a

    task force was formed to put together the logistics.

    5. Phone message coverage signup: Evan agreed to cover the month of July.

    renewal waived. We agreed to go case by case since some members had not

    renewed in a couple of years.

    APPROVAL OF CONSENT AGENDA:

    A motion was madeto approve the consent agenda which consisted of the April minutes

    of both the Board and Executive board meetings. It was seconded and passed.

    OLD BUSINESS:

    1. Spring Social: Discussion over lack of time to have it in the spring. It was

    decided that September 12th from 4-7 pm would be the time most of the board

    could attend. Evan will firm up the date in order to put a notice in the newsletter

    to save the date. He and committee will come back to the meeting with a menu

    and costs.

    2. Office management/Coverage: K.Sue reported that she has been cleaning up

    emails on the website and added webmaster that will go to David Hillstrom @

    Infolane. The address was changed so that everything goes to Hudson

    management. The money from the CEU classes will be sent directly to Hudson,

    envelopes will be supplied to all the sites. The CEU Chair needs list Nadesdye on

    the website. CEU dates and times were not consistent on the website and were

    different, in different places. This is being rectified. There were 4-5 people who

    came to the wrong time for a CEU class. Nadesdye will send apologies and offer

    them a free CEU class in the future. Evan volunteered for one month to help

    people who have called in requesting help finding a therapist. Carolyn is helping

    with membership renewal. Any glitch in the system should be sent to K.Sue to

    clear up. We are also trying to get the newsletter in a format that can be read

    directly rather than having to log in to read it.

    3. 2012 IAGP Conference Proposal: Cindy and committee reported that we have

    $5,000.00 pledged by Bill Roller’s group. We are still waiting to hear from the

    others, although SF camft has declined. It was discussed and ebcamft should only

    be responsible for $10,000.00. A motion was made that the committee have

    financial structures in place by next Friday. At that time it will be brought to the

    board for a full vote. This would include $15,000.00 from other groups. The

    motion was seconded and passed with 5 in favor, one opposed and one abstaining.

    NEW BUSINESS:

    A. E-tree Guidelines Proposal: David presented his findings from the feedback from

    members about changing the guidelines. Of the 21 responses only 8 people

    replied with policy recommendations: 5 wanted no change, 3 wanted to ban

    contentious material and 3 want no limits at all. He is recommending that we

    replace the current Guidelines with Terms and Conditions of use and give the

    Etree manager the authority to enforce said terms. Suggested progression of

    sanctions from warning, suspension of one week to long suspension of one month

    to finally banning them from the Etree. All bans will be reviewed by the board

    within 60 days. All Etree communications must be archived so they are available

    for review by the board. Terms and conditions of use are to be sent to the etree

    monthly. Consider creating a separate forum for community discussion. A

    motions was made to give the Etree manager authority to enforce terms and

    conditions of use and that the board will review these bans within 60 days. The

    motion was seconded and it was passed unanimously.

    B. Law and Ethics Conference: Guillermo presented his proposal from the Marriot

    in Walnut Creek. October 3, 2009 will be the date and will go in the newsletter to

    save the date. David Jensen is presenting.

    C. Board Positions/Responsibility: K.Sue reminded all board members to review

    their job responsibilities.

    D. Phone Message Coverage Signup: This is on hold because K.Sue does not have

    grid ready yet.

    E. Treasurer’s report: Ellen reported that the income was $4069.17 and expenses

    were $3,000.25 with a net of $1068.92. The Reserves are $28,419.00 and the

    operating expenses per year are $29,882.14.

    F. CAMFT Conference in San Jose: Eleanor reported that she presented at the

    conference and some difficulties due to Cinco de Maya celebration. 850 people

    attended all together. It seemed it was a successful event.

    G. Membership outreach: Carolyn and Nadesdye will be at the Wright Institute on

    Durant in Berkeley on June 26. Any other volunteers are welcome to attend. Ceu

    meetings: Nadesdye reported that 20 people attended the last one. There is one in

    June, but not in July or August.

    H. Legislative update: So far the issues that CAMFT is working on are MFT’s

    parity in the prison system and the LPC proposal. David has been talking with

    CAMDT’s Executive Director and will check with her prior to the next board

    meeting for updates.

    Executive Board Meeting

    4/7/09

    Members present: K.Sue Duncan, President; Guillermo Alvarez, President Elect; Martha

    Jiminez-Rosales, Past President; Ellen Odza, Treasurer.

    Absent: Cindy Beckley, Secretary

    Meeting was held by conference call; it began at 7:00pm and ended at 8:05pm.

    1. David Leon’s Position: There was confusion as to what position David Leon was

    voted into. The minutes said he was voted in as Member–at-Large and Legislative

    Liaison. K.Sue will check with him to see if it is correct that he want both

    positions and we will clarify at the next board meeting on April 17th.

    2. List of Non CAMFT members: It was decided that K.Sue would send an email

    to the list of Non CAMFT members letting them know that they need to join

    CAMFT and if they did not provide us with proof of that by 6/30/09, they will be

    dropped from our membership.

    3. Administrative/Office Position: The board discussed the vacant administrative

    position. It was decided that we are not in a position to supervise a staff member

    and that we are the only chapter in the state that has an office. Between rent and

    salary, the chapter spends roughly $40,000 a year on this. The Board decided to

    get a proposal from Hudson Mgmt. as to what it would cost to have them support

    the chapter and take that proposal back to the Board. The items that were listed

    are:

    o Voicemail (K.Sue had a proposal for a voicemail box from Hudson for

    $12.95/month. It was agreed that we would get this set up

    ASAP

    o Processing Bills to Pay

    o Making Deposits (dues, CEU monies, etc.)

    o Storing documents

    o Keeping CEU certification

    o Mail Processing

    K.Sue and Guillermo will both get trained on the website and how to put stuff up

    on it. The Board discussed the website and perhaps adding a position who job it

    is to monitor an update the site.

    4. Etree: The Board discussed the note from Robin the etree manager and it was

    agreed that she does a good job. The board would like Robin to define brief for

    herself as the etree has guidelines and not hard and fast rules. We did discuss

    letting her know that she could take someone off the etree temporarily and the

    until the board decides what to do. It was also discussed to post the guidelines

    quarterly on the etree.

    Respectfully submitted, K.Sue Duncan
