Affiliate Summit

Mark your calendar for the 5th Annual CFM Affiliate Summit on September 13th -14th 2018, at the Inn at Grand Glaize in Osage Beach. This year’s Affiliate Summit will once again feature impressive speakers and cover important topics.

Although most CFM Affiliates have specific initiatives, each has the over arching goal of ensuring Missouri remains the conservation model other states strive to become.

In order to better organize our collective powers as the conservation community of Missouri we hope that 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.
