CFTA Leadership 

The CFTA Board of Directors is comprised of four Officers and five Directors.

These volunteers are passionate about CFTA and are dedicated to meeting its mission.

Vice-President, if exists, Secretary, and Treasurer serve for a three (3) year term with a limit of two (2) consecutive terms. The President Elect serves one year prior to their term as President. Immediate Past President serves for one year after their term as President completes.
