Your Input is Needed for MAFCA Conventions


May 15 - MAFCA is undertaking a new effort to gain input from its members. To begin with, we need your help to identify what you believe is important for a successful MAFCA National Convention.

The survey contains only 10 questions and you can answer online by clicking here. It will only take you about 6 minutes, perhaps less. Will you please help?

If you prefer, send an email to survey @ for a written copy that you can return by mail if you don’t have access to the Internet.

The survey will be open for member responses from May 1 to June 30.

You can help shape MAFCA’s National Conventions in the future. Thanks for your help.
