Have you have ever attended an LA CAMFT Networking Event or Special Interest Group workshop? If you answer “Yes”, then you know the community-building energy that is our core. Our events are oriented to fostering relationships beyond the consulting room, relationships that support and expand the vital healing work we do. Education, collaboration, expanded resources—this is what we at LA CAMFT offer, to enhance those relationships among our members, with our speakers, our affiliates, and, notably, our sponsors.
Our sponsors provide the life-blood of LA CAMFT activity. Over the years, we have been privileged to have been supported by a diverse array of individuals and institutions who show they value our work by giving us the financial support we need to make it happen. Just last year, our sponsors included educational organizations, like AATBS, Northcentral University, and Gerry Grossman Seminars. Our rehabilitation resources were Paradigm Malibu, Sovereign Health, Resolve Recovery, Valley Recovery, and, especially, Clearview Treatment Center, which has generously deepened its relationship with our community over the years, by supporting and participating in multiple events each year. Simple Practice, which provides office management software, is another sponsor whose long-standing commitment to LA CAMFT has made it an indispensable part of our community. And we could not talk about sponsors without recognizing Steven Unruh, MFT, who not only sponsors events every year, but has stepped up his involvement by taking on organizational responsibilities as an LA CAMFT board member. LA CAMFT sponsors, you guys rock!
2017 promises to be an exciting year of greater expansion and growth for our LA CAMFT community. Essential to this growth is our sponsors’ generous support. And essential to their support is the building of the community relationship, with voiced appreciation, with inclusiveness, and with open-hearted welcome. We invite you, our members and attendees, as part of our LA CAMFT family, to join us in extending that welcome the next time you’re at an event or workshop.
We are always looking to reach out and build the bridge of connection. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor or know of an organization that would be a good fit, please feel free to contact Billie at email@example.com , Estelle at firstname.lastname@example.org.
