When you hear the words TMA and TAMFT lawsuit, does you heart beat faster? Does your blood run cold when people begin to talk about legislative issues?
Is the term, Sunset Commission, confusing?
Are you confused and want to run away thinking this doesn’t concern me?
You are not alone, but think again. The lawsuit and its implications affect every MFT in the state of Texas and beyond. Having our licensing agency looked at during Sunset is time-consuming. But it doesn’t have to be scary.
During the presentation, Jeanene Smith, TAMFT Secretary and Mathis Kennington TAMFT Board member will explain what are the latest happenings, what it means for you and what can be done about it. So many interpretations of what is happening are out there and we want our Chapters to be informed and involved. It is a time for you to ask questions and get answers.
