The California Society for Clinical Social Work needs new board members for the 2018-2019 Board Year, commencing in July of this year. The Society is the only organization in California that focuses on the needs of clinical social workers. Our mission is “to advance and promote the profession and practice of clinical social work.” We are engaged in a multi-year effort to revitalize an organization with a venerable history of providing professional development, advocacy and connection to our members across the state.
Our strategic plan includes strengthening our community and increasing membership resources, as well as broadening and deepening the work we do as an organization. Goals we have achieved include: increasing our student and ASW membership, adding member benefits including the Listserv, growing our Mentorship Program, offering a Supervisor List, and Consultation groups, while continuing to offer high quality educational programming and many opportunities for networking. We have a new logo, increased social media presence, and a new website is in development.
We are seeking a diverse group of board members who are ready to roll up their sleeves to grow the organization. Goals include:
- increasing and diversifying membership
- adding valuable workshops and opportunities for personal development
- increasing financial reserves
- growing resources for members
- having a presence in the state legislature and Board of Behavioral Sciences
We would also like to have (non-social worker) board members with expertise in:
- Business Development
Board members serve a two-year term, and are expected to attend 3 all day meetings each year, participate in monthly conference calls, and lead or serve on committees. For further information please contact Monica Blauner, firstname.lastname@example.org or 310-498-2773.
I ask that you volunteer, or nominate members [or future members] who will join us in making CSCSW a vibrant professional community. All applications will be considered.
Monica Blauner, LCSW
