Benefits of Membership

Professional Development

Chapter Meetings

Monthly meetings are typically held on the second Sunday of the month. The meeting includes a presentation on topics such as therapeutic methods and theory, marketing in private practice, working with specific populations, dealing with managed care, etc.

Meetings are free and CEUs are available for a nominal fee.

The monthly meetings provide an excellent opportunity to network with peers and expand your professional referral base. Some meetings are specifically designed as networking functions, including the Annual Dinner and the annual Intern Meeting, which focuses specifically on issues related to pre-licensed members.

The SF CAMFT Newsletter

The newsletter contains chapter news and professional articles. Members are eligible for

reduced fee classified advertising and may submit articles of interest for publication in the Newsletter. The newsletter is delivered electronically every two months to the entire membership.


The SF CAMFT website provides a digital link to the Chapter and the professional community. Members can join and renew their membership online, as well as have a listing in the public directory of chapter members. There are also links to resources relevant to the practice of marriage and family therapy.

SFCAMFT Listeserv

The SFCAMFT listserv is one of the Chapter’s most valuable resources. Members may post a message that will be delivered via email to all the members of the listserv. It is used to share practice-related information, such as office space needed/for rent, referrals, workshops and groups, employment and internship/practicum opportunities, etc.

SFCAMFT Slack Community

The Slack community is an extra option for members to communicate in addition to the email listserv. We encourage members to create or join channels on topics of interest to them, and engage in direct messaging with groups or individuals.

Pre-Licensed Member Services

An Pre-Licensed Support meeting is held prior to the regular Chapter meeting and is a space for pre-licensed members to ask questions, get support, and learn about internship opportunities.

Mentoring Program

SF CAMFT offers a mentoring program to members who are transitioning from one phase of their professional development to another, including Associates approaching licensure, newly-licensed clinicians, or therapists establishing a private practice. Mentors are experienced clinicians who provide practical advice and encouragement.

Diversity Committee

The Diversity Committee offers support and community to therapists of color through a number of business and clinical consultation groups. The committee also seeks to educate membership on issues relating to diversity with engaging chapter presentations.

Networking Events

Monthly luncheons at local restaurants, a quarterly happy hour, and other social events provide an opportunity to network personally and professionally. Click here to view our calendar of events.

Private Facebook Group

A private group for chapter members where folks can connect, network, post office space, look for referrals, etc.
