President's Corner

My Fellow CFDD Salem/Albany Chapter Members,

It was such an honor for me to represent our mighty little chapter at the CFDD National Business Luncheon meeting held during Credit Congress in June. For the second consecutive year, CFDD Salem/Albany received award recognition in four major categories in ‘Class C Membership:’

Distinguished Member Achievement Award—
Kathy Hamilton, CCE, SAIF Corporation


Monthly Program – “Social Media”
Presenter, Joel Bornzin, Columbia River Knife & Tool

Special Seminar/Workshop—2014
“Credit Retreat

In addition, two members have earned CFDD National Scholarships:

CFDD National Conference 2014—Brett M. Hanft, CBA
NACM Credit Congress 2015— Lori Kimball, CBF

Congratulations to our membership for this tremendous National recognition! I also want to extend my appreciation to your Board of Directors who volunteers many hours of service to our CFDD chapter. Our commitment and dedication has been acknowledged at the highest level.

We return to our normal meeting schedule with a great program coming up on Tuesday, August 12. I encourage you all to squeeze in a few hours for CFDD. Please mark your calendars and plan to join us for our upcoming chapter Meeting.

This year’s CFDD National Conference will be held on September 18 and 19 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I encourage you to budget the funds necessary to attend at least one credit
conference each year for the enormous educational and networking benefits you receive at these events.

Enjoy the remainder of your summer. All too soon we’ll be looking at the ‘dog days of summer’ and the beginning of fall.  Spend time with friends, family, and your CFDD peers. I look forward to seeing you at our chapter meeting on August 12.Respectfully,

Brett M. Hanft, CBA
