Board of Directors

When you join CLFP as an active processor member you determine your representative to serve as a director. Usually a senior company executive, your director will meet with his or her peers three times each year. The board of birectors holds a fall meeting, a winter meeting during CLFP’s annual convention and a spring meeting. Public policy positions and staff strategic goals are set with every member at the table.
