CFMA VOS Chapter Updates
October 1, 2015
around the Chapter
by Marj Weber
When checking my records I found the last "around the Chapter" was published in July 2014! So much has happened in that 14 months there's just not enough space to review. Though review is not necessary, since Michelle does such a great job of keeping the membership informed via this monthly newsletter.
So, that being said, I do want to talk about a couple of events that happened over this past summer (though it still feels like SUMMER!).   Read Marj's full "around the Chapter" - click here!

25th Annual Golf Tournament
Sign up before it sells out!
The 25th Annual CFMA Valley of the Sun Golf Tournament, presented by title sponsor CBIZ-MHM, is quickly approaching.  It will be held on Wednesday, October 28th, at the Orange Tree Golf Club.  This is the chapter's premier fundraising event to support its educational and scholarship programs. 
A few sponsorships are still available - Visit the tournament page for more information today!

Community Service
Huge thanks for UMom Support!
Thanks to all who came out to the UMom walk last Saturday and to everyone who donated online!  Your generosity, combined with our chapter donation of $1,500, raised $3,475 total and made us the #1 fundraising team!  Great job everybody!
Our next event is at St. Mary's Food Bank where we will be packing food boxes on Friday, November 13, from 1 - 4 pm.

Salary Survey
Watch your inbox!
The salary survey will be going out today, October 1st.  Watch your inbox for the opportunity to participate in this year's survey - and think of other non-CFMA member industry associates that you can invite to participate.  The more data received, the more useful the results for all of us!  The survey will be open October 1st through 30th, with results available (for free to participants) by year end.
Spring Semester Scholarships
Encourage a student you know to apply!
  Know any starving students studying in the fields of accounting, business or construction?  Be sure to tell them about the VoS Scholarship and have them apply before October 31st - yes - Halloween - that's no trick, but some worthy students will be getting a big treat!
For full details and eligibility information visit the scholarship web page and download the application today!
