Message from the President

Here we are 2020 already and we have squeezed in two fabulous CFMA Twin Cites programs offering CPE!!  In January we started with a “Tax, Accounting & Economic Update” from RSM and in February we had a huge turnout for the “Wage Theft Law Update” from the DOL&I.  In 2019 we finished with some great events which included our annual CFMA Golf Tournament, a Cyber Security Panel, our annual CFMA Day were attendees earned 6 hours of CPE, and in November Larson King provided us an update on regional Lien Laws.

One of the Twin Cities CFMA Chapter’s commitments is giving back to the community and members that it serves. I am happy to share with you that we were able to do that in many ways over the past few months. First off, a cash donation in the amount of $1,506 was made to the American Cancer Society using proceeds from raffle ticket sales at CFMA Day. Secondly, we issued 5 Concurrent Scholarships to interns of current Members in the amount of $2,000 each! Keep an eye out for more talent on your team this summer because we will be looking for new applications from interns again this year. The Due date for applications will be mid-August again.

For all of the new members watch your inbox for an invitation to the new member event on April 22nd at Top Golf!! For you existing members don’t worry you are invited too. We wouldn’t be able to give new members a warm welcome without you.

There is too much on tap in 2020 to list it all in the newsletter but rest assured it will be packed with education, fun, a few cocktails, and CPE. So, watch your inbox and the CFMA Twin Cities will provide numerous opportunities to expand your professional knowledge and build relationships with some of the construction industry’s most passionate and talented professionals.  

I look forward to seeing you at the upcoming events!

John Kapphahn, MBA
