CCFM Committees

Typically, our committees begin meeting after the conference in the spring and will meet once a month, excepting July, December and the following year’s conference month; that’s a total of nine conference calls a year. The calls are kept to an hour. The managing director and at least one board member attend all committee calls. Service on any committee, as defined in the Bylaws, is one year. We appreciate our members’ involvement and love to see new faces and get new perspectives. If interested, please email for more information.
