CMHPC Membership Applications
Are you thinking of joining us? The CMHPC strives to have a membership that represents California's geographic and cultural diversity across all age groups.

Appointments are made in late Fall in order to encourage attendance at the first quarterly meeting held in San Diego in January; and terms run for three years.There four appointment categories:
The CMHPC is also strongly committed to leadership development through a mentoring model, and members are encouraged to volunteer for committee vice-chairs or chairs as they become familiar with Council activities and schedules. The Council chair is elected annually for a one year term and is assisted by the past chair and the chair-elect.
If interested, please review our New Member Orientation information (text-only version here). It provides more detail on what is expected of Planning Council members, the Planning Council's current structure and priorities, and how the Planning Council operates.
Please check our current roster to identify current vacancies in each category.
