5. Our club secretary has changed. Who do we notify?

The designation of a new Secretary of Record for any member club shall be made in writing to the CFA Central Office at 260 East Main St. Alliance, OH 44601, by the existing Secretary of Record, OR

If the existing Secretary of Record is unavailable or otherwise unable to make such designation, a letter must be sent to the Central Office which has been signed by all other existing officers (President, Vice President, Treasurer) of the member club designating a new Secretary of Record and stating the reason(s) why the previous Secretary of Record is unable to make the designation.

Until one of the above requirements is met, the Central Office is not authorized to change a club's files to reflect a new secretary.
