How to determine if you should consider a board position on the Rocky Mountain Chapter of ACBS? By Brooks Witter, President
Read the following statements and determine if they are true for you:
ü I am passionate about the science and values of the ACBS community and seek to deeply connect with other clinicians, practitioners and researchers in this community.
ü I feel that my life is enhanced by my participation in this community.
ü I believe that if more communities were like ACBS - collegial, compassionate, respectful, committed to human liberation, humble and curious - we could go a long way to addressing human suffering.
ü I recognize there is only so much that an individual can do alone, and in order to support broad-reaching responsible change, I am committed to working with others to bring the wisdom and tools of psychological and behavioral flexibility to the general public.
ü I seek opportunities for personal and professional growth and value approaching novel challenges that expand my behavioral repertoire to more effectively serve core valued activity.
ü I am interested in developing leadership skills that accord with CBS principles.
If three or more of the above statements are true for you, please consider joining the board of Rocky Mountain ACBS Board. The opportunity to work on the board is a powerful commitment to serve and learn with fellow professionals.
In my experience I have found this service to be personally challenging and deeply rewarding. In addition to the joyful creativity and humor that is in abundance in our board meetings, my work on the board has also brought me into contact with some darker demons of my mind: insecurity, doubt, anxiety and fear. These experiences have been great training grounds for my development as a leader and, more broadly, as a flexible human being.
If you are committed to the values of ACBS and seek to more deeply ingrain the skills of psychological flexibility in service of valued activity, I have found few better venues for training than my service on this board.
If you would like to speak with me, Past-President, Brooks Witter, or other current board members about the specifics of these positions, please be in touch.
