Committees


 

 

 

Committees are vital to the success of our CFMA Portland Chapter.  Members can volunteer in a variety of ways within CFMA. 

 

This is a great way for you to get to know other members of the association. Time commitments vary by committee, but most meet once a month or quarter for about an hour. They are fun and informative meetings.
