CONGRATULATIONS to James Brown, LMFT who is our new President.Bylaws Voting.

Hello OAMFT members.  Hopefully you have received a ballot from AAMFT about board members and about changes to the bylaws. We hope you take some time to check out the videos on the candidates. A few thoughts about the changes to the bylaws which will impact us all.

Again, we encourage you to go to the AAMFT website for more details.

1. It is the board of AAMFT and staff members desire to change the bylaws to go from a division based organization to an "interest group" organization.  This would happen in January if passed.  At that time you would be invited to join AAMFT (or continue membership) and if you want, to join an interest group.  The fees for joining AAMFT will go down, hopefully by up to 50% (my guess, not a fact).  You would then be able to join as few or as many interest groups as you would like at an additional cost (unknown at the time of this writing).

A current division can choose to be aheadingn interest group and the board of OAMFT is strongly considering that as an option. We wll be starting the paper work around that decision shortly so if the bylaws pass we are ready to go in January. Yes, there is a process to becoming an interest group. You have to have a certain number of people committed to heading  up the organization (we already have a board). The group must have a purpose and goals and a budget.  AAMFT then decides if it can sustain itself financially and if its purpose and goals fit in with the goals and purposes of AAMFT.

Obviously we do not want to do this is current members of OAMFT are not interested. We will be sending out a questionnaire on survey monkey soon in regard to that. PLEASE take a few minutes and respond, we want to serve you and help your practice.

If the bylaws pass, lobbying fees will come straight from AAMFT, not from OAMFT. They will control the who,what, why, where and when of lobbying. It
