Affiliate Summit

7th Annual CFM Affiliate Summit

September 10 & 11, 2020

Virtual Webinar: Starts at 10:00 am each day.

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 overarching goal of ensuring Missouri remains the conservation model other states strive to become.

To become better organize by our collective powers as the conservation community of Missouri, we hope that you will attend this year’s virtual Affiliate Summit. Your attendance, along with additional leaders of your organization, will help ensure this Affiliate Summit is as productive as possible. We welcome paid staff and passionate volunteers.
