My Fellow CFDD Salem/Albany Chapter Members,
Happy New Year! We head into the month of February with several important CFDD events.
At our chapter Meeting on February 11 we will honor a member of our chapter with the Distinguished Member Achievement Award (DMA). Cindy Robert will attend as our guest speaker and provide us with a Legislative Update straight from the State Capitol.
The following week, on February 21 and 22, the CFDD Salem/Albany and CFDD Portland Chapters will host the 2014 Credit Retreat at McMenamin’s – Edgefield in Troutdale, Oregon. We’ll start our Retreat on Friday with “Bankruptcy—Back to Basics.” Sessions will be presented by Jason Torf, an attorney coming to the Rose City from Chicago. Judge Trish Brown will provide us with a perspective of bankruptcy from her point of view presiding as an active judge in the U.S. Bankruptcy Courts. Our educational sessions continue with a ‘Credit Application Boot Camp,’ Online Tips, Tricks, Tools, and Techniques, then concluding with a presentation on Social Media. This is a dynamite program worth 1.2 CEU’s or CCE recertification points. Please contact Kathy Hamilton, CCE, at firstname.lastname@example.org to get registered!
I encourage everyone to complete and submit a CFDD National Scholarship Application by the March 17 deadline. The CFDD Salem/Albany Chapter contributes to the CFDD National Scholarship Fund each year—it’s exciting to see our members reap the rewards of earning scholarship dollars for upcoming educational events, self-study courses, and even certification fees. Let me know if you would like to see a scholarship winning application or assistance getting your application completed and submitted.
I want to extend sincere thanks and gratitude to the members of our Board who continue to dedicate time and effort to our chapter membership. Carol, Kathy, Lori K., and Lori J.—you motivate and inspire me. It’s my pleasure to lead this CFDD Chapter when I’m supported by such fiercely loyal members of the chapter.
I’m looking forward to seeing you at both chapter events in February.
