RFMA Staff Changes
RFMA wanted to inform you that Jennifer Moore our Member Services Coordinator will be leaving RFMA. After much thought, she has decided at this time that it will be best for her family that she is home with her three young children. Her last day will be Friday, September 7.
As a small staff we will all pitch in to cover Jennifer's duties until a replacement can be found that will be the strongest possible addition to our team.
We hope you will join us in wishing Jennifer the best and thank her for her work and dedication to RFMA over the past two and a half years!
