CFTA Community Member Forum Policy


The CFTA Forum is a place provided by CFTA for its members and constituents. The CFTA Member Forum is accessible through an active CFTA membership profile only and encourages networking, open communication, and resource sharing to foster an environment where members look to peers for ideas, advice, and share resources supporting the use and advancement of FM technologies.

Misuse of the Member Forum

CFTA does not actively police the Member Forum and it is accessible to Members Only. We ask that you report any perceived violations of the above rules to us by emailing [email protected]. Doing so will enable us to act quickly.  Violations of these polices will be addressed on a case-by-case basis and may result in warnings or expulsion from the forum.
