Chairperson - Bindy Sweett, CCLS
Prior to taking on the role of CLCC Chairperson in June 2018, Bindy was Chair Elect for two years. From 2014-2016 she coordinated the Ethics and Appeals Committees, and prior to that time served on Exam Assembly, Practice Analysis Task Forces, Academic and other summits as well as participation in other certification-related positions. Her first experiences as an ACLP volunteer were with Item Writing and Review as early as 1998, preparing for the first certification by exam. She also worked as Chairperson of the Certifying Committee from 1999 until 2001.
The quality and quantity of work completed in the past two years challenges all those cumulative years of CLCC volunteer work prior to 2016. Although it has been challenging to come up to speed and respond with the rapidity with which CLCC performs, she looks forward to the next two years as Chair with a hardworking group of volunteers. Between stints with certification, Bindy was involved with the Internship and Practice Standards Task Forces, also completing 22 years as a clinician and 10 years as a child life instructor before retiring in 2011. Bindy’s personal interests including books, music, cooking, a love of nature and a fond admiration for winter sports, most of which she is terrified! She is the loving single parent on one wonderful grown son.
