CFMA VOS Chapter Updates

Conference Wrap Up
by David James aka Donnie

Saddle up boys and girls, and get high atop your favorite steed, as we take you on a trail ride through San Antonio, Texas. This ride, cleverly disguised as the 2016 CFMA Annual Conference, and christened " Building it Forward ", blended a strategic mix of education, networking, partying, bull riding and sweat into this five day conference. A great job by our Galactic HQ staff and the Conference Planning Committee!
But hang on tight to those reigns, because this trail ride will lead you through brush and mesquite, washes and hills, while telling you the real news behind this event . . . . Fair and Balanced.
