Phylliss Clark Memorial Fund
The Phylliss Clark Memorial Fund was established in honor of the well-known and respected manager of the NACM Oregon education/communications department, who died in 1993. Because of Phylliss Clark’s strong interest in and commitment to education, and her dedicated service to NACM and CFDD, a memorial endowment was established in her name. Earnings are used to promote education of CFDD credit professionals. These two annual scholarships are awarded to first-time attendees of the CFDD National Conference.
