We operate on a fiscal year of July 1st – June 31st. Our meetings have been revised this year to four general meetings.  Committees are established at the first meeting.  Committee chairs will establish their own meeting schedule, providing summary reports at the general meetings. Committees will be encouraged to meet as their schedule allows and communicate via phone and email to facilitate their duties. The Annual Scholarship Luncheon is held in June of each year.

Current levels of membership are: ACTIVE and SUSTAINING. Active members participate on committees, attend meetings and events, and are committed to furthering CSF’s mission.  Active member dues are $100 per year.  Sustaining members are members who support our cause, but are not able to commit to participating at meetings or on committees. Sustaining member dues are $200 per year.
