Membership & Organizing Committee
Building Power!


This web page has information and materials you can download and use to express your voice as a CFA Member.
CFA activists also can share these materials when you ask other CSU faculty to become members of CFA. Click on the pods to the right side of this page where you will find letters, door signs, and more.

Of course, all CSU faculty are represented by CFA when we have needs under our contract. But to actually be a member of CFA, a person must complete a membership form to express your wish to be included as a CFA member.

More CFA members means a stronger union to defend our contract and our profession—and that’s important for us, for our students, for public higher education, and for our families.


The CFA Membership and Organizing Committee (M&O) works to build CFA member power. We work with with the Chapter Presidents Council and the Council of Lecturers to develop programs tohat increase CFA’s organizational strength.

Every campus CFA Chapter is urged to have an M&O Chair, and a chapter committee to help build CFA member power.

In addition, we have an overall M&O Committee composed of at least four members appointed by the CFA president and one member designated by CFA’s Political Action and Legislative Committee. The committee’s chair is elected by the Assembly from the CFA membership. The terms of office are for two years.
