CMF is offering enhancements to our membership program. CMF membership will now include the option to join one of four regional chapters. These regional chapters will be aligned with Alta California’s four historic presidio districts: San Diego, Santa Barbara, Monterey, and San Francisco. Moving forward, CMF members will have the option of signing up for regional events within their presidio district or other districts if desired.  This addition will allow members to be a part of the state-wide community, while also participating in local and regional activities. Events at missions in each district will include lecture(s), networking, and tour(s). Our hope is that these new presidio chapters will add to the CMF membership experience.
