CFMA VoS Members, BEFORE YOU REGISTER FOR THE CONFERENCE,
Please Note the Following:
The Chapter is SO excited to be the host chapter for this year’s CFMA National Conference: The Foundation for Success, June 3 – 7 at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge. We want to show the rest of the country what an amazing group of members we have and come out strong in numbers and participation at the conference.
Two opportunities are available to help with the cost of the conference registration, or an opportunity to contribute to a great organization, UMOM.
Chapter Registration Subsidy
To help you participate in this amazing, local opportunity, the chapter’s Officers and Directors have approved a subsidy to any active Valley of the Sun member in the amount of $350 toward the cost of conference registration. In addition, headquarters has agreed to freeze the registration price at the early bird amount of $1095 regardless of when you register. This means that you can attend the conference for $745 – and since it’s local, there are no travel or lodging costs to consider!
We also recognize that while this scholarship may be a help to many and be the difference-maker between being able to attend or not, others have already budgeted or had approved by their employers to pay the full price of registration. Since this is a big investment to the chapter, we hate to see the scholarship funds be used if they don’t provide a significant benefit. So – we have the option available that if you wish to waive the scholarship we will divert the $350 instead to a scholarship & community service fund – using the dollars to fund other educational scholarships and to make a great contribution to UMOM at the conference!
So – the choice is yours – but whatever you do – don’t miss the conference! Register today and use one of these codes to take advantage of these offers:
To take advantage of the $350 scholarship –use the code EBVOS0745 at checkout and you will be charged $745.
To waive the $350 scholarship – use the code EBVOS1095 at checkout to receive the $1095 early bird pricing regardless of when you register…and then forward your receipt for full payment to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can track the funds to use for the UMOM and scholarship fund.
PLEASE do not share these codes with any CFMA friends from other chapters…these are only for VOS use – any non-VOS member who uses them will be required to repay the difference, and we have assured headquarters that our members can be fully trusted to not abuse this arrangement J
Conference Registration Scholarships
The chapter will be funding up to 5 first-time attendee scholarships.
The purpose of the scholarship is to allow VoS Members, who might otherwise be unable to attend, an opportunity to explore this CFMA experience.
CFMA provides great networking and educational opportunities to its members, and this conference is an integral part of that experience. Getting VoS members into this education and networking forum is valuable and, hopefully, will start you on the road to additional activity in CFMA VoS.
You can download the scholarship application here. (Deadline to apply is noon on April 28, 2017)
AND – be sure to attend the monthly lunches between now and the conference to buy your raffle tickets for a chance to win a completely FREE registration!
