2020 Call for Nominations 

The Board Development Committee of the Family Focused Treatment Association (FFTA) is seeking nominations of leaders from agency members to serve on the FFTA Board of Directors. Nominations will be considered for two board seats, with service beginning January 1, 2020.

The FFTA strives to have a Board of Directors that represents a diverse leadership as defined by race, ethnicity, gender, religion, age, sexual orientation, nationality, disability, geographic location, agency size, and skill set. The committee seeks candidates that can contribute knowledge and expertise that supports the execution of FFTA’s strategic plan, including:

  • Public Policy and Advocacy
  • Research, Evaluation, CQI and research-to-practice initiatives
  • Fund Development
  • Treatment Foster Care
  • Kinship Care
  • Reunification of children and youth transitioning from TFC
  • Adoption and post-adoption support services

In an effort to form a governing body that represents all regions of the U.S. and Canada, FFTA especially encourages Board nominations from agencies located in the Northwestern, Southwestern and New England regions of the U.S. and in Canada.

The 25-member Board of Directors represents the association and formulates policies that impact agencies providing family-focused treatment services and the profession as a whole. Ideally, candidates will have participated in FFTA activities at the chapter or national committee level, demonstrated leadership abilities in his/her agency, and have prior experience serving on a Board of Directors.

Each member agency is limited to one representative on the Board. The nominee is expected to serve on committees and be an active member of our working Board. This involves participating in conference calls and web meetings, attending board meetings, and volunteering for and executing board assignments.

Board members benefit from board service by sharing knowledge with other professionals in the field and enhancing their professional development. The Board meets four times per year in different locations throughout North America. Board members and/or their agencies pay their own expenses to participate in Board meetings (estimated at approximately $7,000 per year). One of these four Board meetings is held in conjunction with the FFTA Annual Conference and another in conjunction with the Annual Public Policy Institute & Advocacy Day.

Please forward nomination letters and candidate resumes by FRIDAY OCTOBER 4TH to
