CFMA VOS Chapter Updates
September 1, 2015
25th Annual Golf Tournament
Presented by Title Sponsor CBIZ MHM PC



Supporting education is one of the key missions of the Valley of the Sun chapter.  In the past year, VoS has awarded 15 scholarships to university students pursuing degrees in the field of construction or accounting, contributed $10,000 to its endowment at NAU, supported 3 member's attendance to their first National Conference and contributed to 5 member's obtaining their CCIFP designation.


The key fundraiser to support these scholarship awards is the annual Golf Tournament, which is coming up on Wednesday, October 28th, at the Orange Tree Golf Club.  Early bird sponsorship and registration deadline is September 9 - so don't miss out on your opportunity to get involved!  This will sell out soon, so click here to sign up today!


Regional Conference
There's still time to sign up for the inaugural Southwest Regional Conference, which is an excellent opportunity for education and networking.  Join other members from Valley of the Sun, Las Vegas, Albuquerque, Orange County, and San Diego Chapters in Long Beach, September 13 - 15.  Find more information on the conference website!  Register now before it sells out!

Get your CCIFP On!

The Chapter is once again supporting it's members financially in obtaining their CCIFP certification.  Any member who has participated in the local Overview and then sits for the exam will be reimbursed for the cost of the Overview ($150).  Any member who then passes the exam will receive a reimbursement of $350 toward the cost of the exam.

Chapter Website
Bear with us!
Just a note to anyone who has noticed the changes on our chapter website...  National made a change to the platform of all of the chapter websites a little over a week ago.  The change is so that the site will be more mobile-friendly, and in the long run will be a great improvement.  During the transition, some of our pages and tools were lost or moved - we are working hard with headquarters to get the bugs worked out.  Your patience is appreciated in the interim!
September Lunch
One Week Late!
September's lunch features one of the top rated programs each year - the CEO panel.  Join us to hear from 4 of the Valley's top construction company CEO's on Thursday, September 24th. Please note - this is the 4th Thursday of September, not the 3rd like usual!  Register here!
