We look forward to welcoming you to the CFPC’s Annual Meeting of Members (AMM) on Wednesday, October 30, 2024, from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. (ET). Registration and agenda details will be shared by October 9, 2024.

Board director elections: The call for nominations is issued annually by February 1st.

Meeting norms: To make sure we have an efficiently run meeting that provides as much opportunity for member input as possible, the CFPC adopts a set of AMM meeting norms. Read the norms from 2023, which will be updated and circulated with the agenda on October 9, 2024.

Member input for the AMM agenda: Member feedback is always encouraged. If you have questions or would like to get in touch with us about an idea you would like to propose, please contact us at [email protected] for an informal discussion. The deadline to propose inputs this year is Wednesday, June 12, 2024—please get in touch with us before this date.

Member questions during the AMM: The AMM is scheduled to take place for 1.5 hours. While efforts are made to allow time for general questions and answers at the end of the meeting, given the virtual format and the focus on providing adequate time for member input during debate, we may not have time to respond to everyone. We encourage you to submit your questions in advance if possible, or following the meeting, to [email protected].

Member-proposed motions: Members entitled to vote at the meeting are welcome to submit a proposal to be considered for inclusion on this year’s AMM agenda, provided they are received before Wednesday, June 12, 2024. Contact us at [email protected] to access the form and all relevant information to consider when drafting the motion. Member-proposed motion submission form.

Bylaw amendments: From  time to time and when necessary, the CFPC, through amendments to its bylaws, may make certain changes, including to the way it operates, makes decisions, and conducts its business, among other things. For many reasons, including consistency and coherence, regulatory compliance, and understanding of the operational functioning of the organization, the CFPC itself is best positioned to propose such amendments. Where non-administrative bylaw amendments are contemplated that may have an impact on the membership (e.g., changes to the membership structure, voting classes, etc.), the CFPC will engage with members to confirm support before the amendments would be considered at an AMM. Despite the foregoing, if any voting members would like to propose an amendment to the bylaws, they are encouraged to contact us at [email protected], as early as possible, for an informal discussion. The required form should be submitted by Wednesday, June 12, 2024 (which you will receive when you reach out). Bylaw amendment request form.
