Department Representatives

CFA’s effectiveness depends on having a system of active rank-and-file members who help to provide direction for the organization.

Department Representatives serve as liaisons between their departments and the CFA-LA executive board. They have the responsibility of keeping the appropriate committees informed of any departmental conditions in need of attention; working with the Membership and Organizing Committee to recruit new members and activists; and working with the Communications and Media Committee to assist with the dissemination of information to constituents in their department.

If you don’t see your department listed above, that means there’s no representative. If that’s the case, please consider becoming a department rep. For more information, contact Marcelle Alvarado @
