Welcome to the 2017 CAFS Annual Meeting Website


The Tenth Annual Meeting was held in Portland, Oregon, May 2-4, 2017.  Many thanks to all of the participants for making it a great meeting, and to our host Glenn Howe and his team at OSU for hosting us!


Invitations to participate in the 2017 project preference voting process have been distributed by email to all CAFS members. If you did not receive your email and copy of the voting memo, please contact Lisa at lisa_schabenberger@ncsu.edu, or 919-513-7368.

Voting will be open from June 1 - 30, 2017.

Following the vote tally, CAFS university leaders will review the voting results and develop a funding formula that best fits member priorities, while taking into account budget and personnel realities. The Executive Committee of the IAB will then be consulted before the allocations are finalized and reported to the full membership.
