Wisconsin Members Forum

The Wisconsin Members Forum is a great way to stay connected to membership and what WAMFT is doing on behalf of you, our members. It's important to keep your contact information up to date, as you'll be receiving our notices, job postings, and announcements through the Forum from now on. It's easy to select your preferences (real time, daily digest, etc) and to update your email so you receive information. Feel free to post any questions you may have as well. This is a great place to talk to our MFT community.

Members Virtual Hangouts

Sessions are held via Zoom and are typically an hour long. We welcome input from participants to discuss what they hope to get from the space and to seek support from the group. We plan to offer three FREE online Forums for members in 2020, please watch your announcements for opportunities including:
