Executive Committee Positions

CCBD members at convention booth

We're committed to encouraging individuals who work with children and youth with emotional and behavioral disorders to fully participate in the Division for Emotional and Behavioral Health (DEBH).

We feel active participation in the direction of DEBH is an investment in the field, research, and practice of working with students in the most fulfilling way.

In an effort to provide individuals with opportunities to participate in and shape the Division for Emotional and Behavioral Health (DEBH) now and into the future, nominations for DEBH's Executive Committee positions are done on a rotating basis.

Positions become open for nomination in a staggered manner (i.e., certain positions have openings each year instead of the full Executive Committee being elected each year) to allow opportunities for any interested party.
