Welcome to CFSA’s New Website!
For the past few months we’ve been hard at work refreshing our website that was beginning (some would say more than “beginning”) to look a bit out of date.  But not any more!

We added a more news-oriented Home Page, a Members Only section, a News and Events blog, and have plans to add an online version of the Red Book, among other time-saving conveniences down the road. We also have a new mobile-friendly version.

What you’re looking at today, is our “soft” launch. Some pages still need to be added and I’m sure a few bugs will need to be exterminated in the upcoming weeks as well. If you find a link that’s not working or if you can’t find a certain piece of information, please let me know. This site is for you – our valued members! Melissa, CFSA Web-ista
