President's Message

It is hard to believe that the summer is almost over and fall is upon us! But it promises to be an exciting time with the upcoming CFDD National Conference and our Distinguished Member Award presentation at our September meeting.

We had a fantastic and informative presentation from Ellen Klem from the Oregon Department of Justice on "Fraud" at our August meeting. She talked about the latest scams and various resources that we can use to protect ourselves and our loved ones.

As mentioned above, our September meeting includes presentation of the Distinguished Member Award to a deserving member of our chapter, plus I will give a presentation on the NACM-Oregon Foundation and the scholarship opportunities they have to offer to our chapter members. After the presentations, we will hold our fall harvest auction, which members can bid on fall goodies and decorations. We will also have a Wall of Wine where bottles will be raffled off. We want to have lots of items to bid and raffle on so please contact Molly Spearing at mspearing@danner.com on what you plan to donate. Our auctions are always a lot of fun and the proceeds benefit our scholarship so I hope everyone comes hungry and ready to bid! Also, in addition to our auction, we will also start collecting food for the Oregon Food Bank. This is a great charity and our chapter has been very supportive of it over the years.

Congratulations to Charlene Gothard, Clara Nemeth, and Dave Newman for passing the CBF exam! It is such a great achievement and demonstrates their commitment to excellence in the field of credit management and continuing education. I know there are several other members that are working toward their certifications as well so it is great to see our members really making that commitment to their professional development.

Have a great September and I hope to see many of you at the CFDD National Conference in Minneapolis.
