Good morning CFTDA!

Just a friendly reminder that the deadline for membership dues is coming up on April 1st! For those that have paid thank you very much! For those that have not yet paid, please contact Scott Jaeggi to ensure you are up-to-date. We know that if your school is paying for you it may take time.

Additionally, each school should have received your survey link for the Fire Technology side, we are working on the EMS-specific survey and that should be hitting your inboxes in early April. All surveys must be in before July 1st. This information is invaluable to our programs. If your school has not seen an email from either myself or Jeff Baumunk please let us know. Again, thank you very much to those who have already completed them.

Have a great weekend!

Very Respectfully,

Peter Cacossa
