Welcome, FMHCA members to a brand-new year. While FMHCA remains a constant, FMHCA also exists in a state of flux as we identify new directions, the means of travel, and what we will look like a year from now. Our newly elected Board of Directors has sanctioned several key objectives for this year, all of which, when implemented, will see opportunities for cooperation, coordination, and most certainly, an overlapping of contributions from FMHCA’s special Committees, the meat and potatoes of this organization.
About Special Committees
Each of our FMHCA committees serves a very specific purpose. Each meets monthly, has a chairman, and members, all of whom contribute energy and insight to achieve the committees’ objectives. In mid-July, each committee outlined its goals, objectives, and tasks, all of which will serve to advance our organization, our profession, and our standing in the Mental Health Community. Here is a list of FMHCA’s Special Committees:
- Government Relations Committee
- Educational, Training Standards and Continuing Education Committee
- Regional/Chapter Relations Committee
- Membership Committee
- Registered Intern and Graduate Student Committee
- Research Committee
- Military Service Committee
If you are a student and enjoying the perks of FMHCA membership, no time better than this year to begin to get your feet wet in learning the ins and outs of maintaining and advancing your profession. We want your talent and energy to help prepare you for your roles as leaders in the future. Think about ways in which you can receive valuable guidance and mentorship that you might otherwise not get from the classroom.
If you are enjoying the benefits of your clinical membership there are numerous ways to contribute to the growth of FMHCA and establishing ourselves in our communities. There are committee opportunities just waiting for your presence, ideas, and commitment.
