Affiliate Summit

Date and location for 2016 to be determined.

The Conservation Federation of Missouri has 85 affiliate organizations. These organizations range in size from hundreds of thousands to less than a dozen individuals. Each affiliate organization plays an important and unique role in sustaining and promoting the natural resources of Missouri.

Last year, CFM held our Inaugural Affiliate Summit. Over 100 individuals attended representing more than 40 affiliates. 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, I hope you will attend the Second Annual CFM Affiliate Summit on September 17 & 18 at the Inn at Grand Glaize at Lake of the Ozarks. Your attendance, along with additional leaders of your organization, will benefit each of other attendees, and will help ensure this summit is as productive as possible. If you cannot attend, please send someone else from your organization. We welcome paid staff and passionate volunteers.

This year’s Affiliate Summit will once again feature impressive speakers and cover important topics. The final details of the schedule are forthcoming, but interactive discussions will cover:

  • CFM strategic planning
  • CFM lobbying efforts
  • The Legislative Action Center
  • Conservation Day at the Capitol
  • Restructuring the CFM affiliate dues
  • Pollinators/Monarch Butterfly
  • Update on Chronic Wasting Disease
  • Working with Agriculture

The full schedule can be found here.

The Affiliate Summit begins with lunch at 12 p.m. on Thursday and ends at 2 p.m. on Friday. Dinner is provided Thursday evening followed by a hospitality suite. Lunch is also provided on Friday. There is no cost for up to two representatives from Affiliate Organizations that are current on their dues. Additional representatives are welcome to attend for $50 each.
