CFDD Salem/Albany Chapter Members,
As we quickly move beyond Thanksgiving and find ourselves in the ‘hustle and bustle’ of the holiday season, I want to take a moment to extend my thanks to each one of you—members of the CFDD Salem/Albany Chapter. You understand and value the benefit of holding membership in this organization. I appreciate your involvement, dedication, and commitment to keeping this small, but vital chapter alive in the Salem (and surrounding) communities.
I’m always excited for our December holiday meeting. Make sure you are aware that this month’s meeting will be held at Orupa. After our ‘Credit Jeopardy’ program, we will be holding our annual holiday auction—donations are needed to help make this fund-raising event a success for our chapter. Please also consider bringing a guest with you to this fun holiday-themed meeting. The more the merrier!
The CFDD Salem/Albany and Portland Chapters are heavily involved in putting the finishing touches on our upcoming 2014 Credit Retreat. Be on the lookout for program and registration information, which will be distributed in the coming weeks. The early bird registration deadline will be January 17, 2014. Having your registration completed and turned in by this date guarantees your attendance at this two-day educational event for an amazing price of $200. Scholarships are available through our local CFDD chapter as well as through the NACM-Oregon Foundation. Please mark your calendars to attend and participate in this upcoming event on February 21 and 22.
Included in this edition of our chapter newsletter is a DMA nomination form. I encourage you to take a few minutes to think about someone in our chapter who deserves to be recognized and honored as a “distinguished member”… nominations must be submitted by January 15. We will honor the 2014 DMA recipient at our upcoming chapter meeting on February 11.
I want to close this President’s message by wishing you and you families a joyous holiday. Best wishes to you all in the coming year!Brett M. Hanft, CBA
