Letter from the President – Healing From Trauma

CTAMFT President
Dorothy Timmermann, LMFT, CTAMFT Board President

Dear Members,

We will never forget the tragedy that hit our home state of Connecticut just a few short weeks ago. To our friend and colleague Nelba Márquez-Greene and her family, there just are no words to adequately express our sympathies. We understand the trauma of losing your Ana will have an everlasting effect and we collectively hope for the strength and courage you need to heal. We wish to share with everyone that a contribution from our membership was made in honor of Ana Grace Márquez-Greene as a small act of giving from us all.

We are grateful that this year’s Annual Conference theme is Healing Through Family Therapy. We are honored to welcome Dr. Eliana Gil and Dr. Kenneth Hardy as keynote speakers for this event. The format has changed and we are excited to offer a broader program spanning two days which allows so much more time for our connections and relationships to grow. Please consider spending this time with us. Details and registration are now available online at ctamft.org.

Also included in this month’s news you will find information about the new CPT codes that are now in effect, CTAMFT Bylaw Updates, information about CTAMFT’s New Video Workshop Series, 2013 Call for Election Nominations, and the Final Call for Poster Submissions (for the Annual Conference). We appreciate your involvement and hope that you are finding what you are looking for from us. As always, please feel free to contact us with any of your individual needs or ideas.

All my best,
Dorothy

CTAMFT Division Bylaws Update

Bylaws

Bylaws

This year all divisions need to update their Bylaws according to the new AAMFT membership categories, which includes what membership categories are eligible to run for positions as officers and board members, plus appointments for committee chairs.

Your Board of Directors have drafted our proposed Bylaws which have been approved by AAMFT. To pass the updated CTAMFT Division Bylaws, a vote is needed by our membership.

Next week voting members will receive a link to vote to approve these changes or to provide feedback. All members may view the final draft version of the CTAMFT Division Bylaws on ctamft.org. (member login necessary)
