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.

CFMA Chairman’s Challenge Coin

Many of CFMA’s members are doing “great” things throughout the year, which is why it was important for 2018-2019 Chairman Joe McLaughlin to find a way to recognize members on an ongoing basis.

He was reminded of the military tradition of the challenge coin—a small medallion or token that signifies a person is a member of an organization, thus the Chairman’s Challenge Coins were born. A limited number of coins were produced and were given to members of the Executive Committee who were responsible for acknowledging members for their “service and excellence.”

The response to the coins was overwhelming. We saw a range of positive emotions each time someone was presented with a coin and the stories around why the coin was presented were truly heartwarming.  I am happy to share that the next three CFMA Chairman have committed to continue the Chairman’s Challenge Coin.
