Affiliate Summit

Mark your calendar for the Third Annual CFM Affiliate Summit  on Friday, August 19 at the University Plaza Hotel in Springfield. This year’s Affiliate Summit will once again feature impressive speakers and cover important topics.

Over 80 individuals representing more than 35 affiliates attended the CFM Affiliate Summit last year. Although most CFM affiliates have specific initiatives, each has the overarching goal of ensuring Missouri remains the conservation model other states strive to become.

In order to better organize our collective power as the conservation community of Missouri, we hope you will attend this year’s Affiliate Summit. Your attendance, along with additional leaders of your organization, will benefit all other attendees, and will help ensure this Affiliate Summit is as productive as possible. If you cannot attend, please send someone else from your organization. We welcome paid staff and passionate volunteers.
