CFMA VOS Chapter Updates
July 1, 2016
Note from the President
Lynne Pace, DL Withers
Greetings from the inside of my refrigerator!
As we all attempt to keep cool during this unprecedented heat wave, we can all look forward to a number of upcoming "cool" events! First, the CFMA National Conference that will be held in San Antonio June 25th to June 29th - currently 39 VoS members are registered to attend. It should be very educational, informational and fun!
For those unable to attend the National Conference, you may want to check out the Southwest Regional Conference scheduled for San Diego Sept 25th to 27th. The topics and speakers are exceptional and the conference is sure to sell out. The Early Bird rate expires July 8th, so sign up today.
Also upcoming are the Diamondbacks game on Sept 9th, the CCIFP Overview and Exam, and so much more. This chapter simply does not stand still! It is so gratifying and exciting to see the involvement of so many of our members in so many events. Make sure you keep up with all the activities and events on our website, blog and Facebook page. You can also find lots of photos of past events - just the way to pass the day while staying inside and cool!
Until next time, stay cool!

Thanks for Participating!
We've had a great outpouring of support for our two recent Community Service Efforts.  Thanks to everyone who came out to pack food at the Feed My Starving Children event, and to Diana Bujnovsky for coordinating it.  Our members also showed their extraordinary generosity with their Back to School Drive donations for UMom at our June lunch - in addition to an enormous pile of supplies, over $350 of gift cards were contributed.  Thank you as always for everyone's support.  Our next event will be the UMom Walk at the zoo in September - watch for details!
