The health and wellbeing of members, exhibitors, staff, and other stakeholders is our top priority. Due to the growing concern around the coronavirus (COVID-19), and in alignment with the best practices laid out by the CDC, WHO, and federal and local governments, CFMA has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 CFMA Annual Conference & Exhibition.

New Member Pricing Structure

Effective with new members joining CFMA after May 1, 2013; CFMA no longer offers a full year of membership (anniversary date to anniversary date) as we have in the past.

CFMA member year runs from April 1 to March 31 of the following year.

Instead we will pro-rate a first year new members’ dues to the traditional March 31 end of fiscal year date applicable to the membership at large. Thus a new member that joins after April 15, 2014 will pay prorated national dues of 11/12ths of $340 ($311.67) for a general and associate dues of $403.33 (11/12ths of the full national annual dues of $440).

This proration scale is also applicable to any chapter dues. Dues proration is only applicable to new first year CFMA members.

See the sample chart below to assist you with determining the new member dues in your first year.

Please note: If you join anytime from September 15 to March 31 you will receive bonus months of membership by default. Contact CFMA headquarters with questions.
