2019-20 STAR Program


The STAR (Support Training And Resources) Program provides a subsidy $3,000 per chapter. The subsidy can be used for the following support:

  1. Chapter Administrative Services expenses
  2. Chapter Marketing expenses (tradeshow expenses, brochures, ads, promotional materials, etc.)
  3. Chapter Educational Program expenses – i.e., Education Day or special educational event longer than a regular chapter meeting (instructor, facility, workbooks, etc.)
  4. CFMA Speaker Program and CFMA Education Programs
  5. Chapter Strategic Planning expenses (facilitator, facility, food & beverage, etc.) CFMA will continue to provide strategic planning to chapters free of charge.

All expenses reimbursed under the 2019-20 STAR Program must be incurred during the current fiscal year (04/01/19-03/31/20).

A completed 2019 Chapter Affiliation Agreement and 2018-19 Chapter Benchmarking Data are required before the chapter can receive a reimbursement.

Details for the STAR Program can be found here.
