CFC Independent Borrowers Executive Summit (IBES)
CFC IBES 2020, scheduled for November 16-18 in Tucson, has been canceled. The health and safety of our members and our staff is our top priority, and we believe the wisest decision is to forego this year’s event. If you, your staff or your members have any questions, please contact the CFC Events and Training team.
