    While the Central Coast Chapter of CAMFT makes every effort to assure fair treatment for all participants and attempts to anticipate problems, there will be occasional issues with regard to presentations/workshops which will require intervention and/or action on the part of the board. This procedural description serves as a guideline for handling such grievances.

    When a participant files a grievance and expects action on the complaint, the following actions will be taken:

    1. The participant(s) will be asked to put concerns in writing (this can be in electronic form, such as an email).
    2. If the grievance concerns a presenter, the content presented by the speaker, or the style of presentation, the individual filing the grievance will be asked to put his/her comments in written format. The Board will then pass on the comments to the speaker, assuring the confidentiality of the grieved individual.
    3. If the grievance concerns a presentation/workshop offering, its content, level of presentation, or the facilities in which the workshop was offered, the Board will mediate and will be the final arbitrator. If the participant requests action, the Board will:
        • provide a credit for a subsequent presentation/workshop or
        • provide a partial or full refund of the presentation/workshop fee
