Dear FAMFT Members:
It is my pleasure to serve as your chair for the Ethics & Diversity Committee on the FAMFT Board. Our president, Anna Lynn Schooley, recently appointed me to this position, as our former chair was unable to complete her term. I am a member of the Central Florida Chapter and most recently served two terms as that chapter’s Legislative Chair. I have been in private practice for 6 years and enjoy working with couples, children and families.
As your Ethics & Diversity Chair it is my hope to promote the following goals in our organization:
- To promote diversity among the Florida chapters and recognize members who promote diversity in their practice, agency, community or scholarly setting.
- To encourage members to adhere to the strict set of ethical standards as put forth by AAMFT and to address any concerns members may have about ethics in their practice.
- To inform the membership about issues regarding ethical concerns and diversity in the practice of our profession.
It is my hope in the next coming months to meet with you chapter’s local chairs to gather ideas on diversity, inclusion, fairness and ethics. In the meantime, please begin to share your concerns or ideas with your chapter chairs about these subject matters. You may also contact me at email@example.com. I look forward to hearing from you.
Lyris Bacchus Steuber, MS, LMFT
Ethics & Diversity Committee Chair, FAMFT
