Leadership Team

CFTA's leadership team is comprised of three Officers and five Directors who, together, make up the Board of Directors. They meet monthly using web-based technologies to plan the Association's needs and more often when the annual conference is approaching. These volunteers are passionate about CFTA and are dedicated to meeting its mission.

Directors serve for a three (3) year term.  President, Secretary, and Treasurer serve for a three (3) year term. The President Elect serves one year prior to their term as President
