The Online Form 1417 for reporting CFC 2001 campaign results has now been posted on our website. Those of you who used this on-line form last year will see very few changes. New users will find that reporting campaign results on-line is simple and helps insure that your PCFO is able to report results quickly and accurately. Here's how it works:
Beginning Monday, February 4, 2002, PCFOs can come to CFC Operation's homepage and register as a Form 1417 user. Registration is a mandatory even if you registered and received a password last year. It is important that you come online and register to use the new electronic reporting system, whether or not you are ready to report campaign. During the registration process, you will be asked to provide contact information, including a valid email address. When registration is complete, you will be emailed a Personal Identification Number (PIN). Please keep this number in a safe place because you will need it when you report campaign results.
Once you have registered and obtained a PIN, you will use your PIN, campaign number, and campaign name to log into the system. The Online 1417 system has been updated in response user comments and suggestions. You will now be able to preview the data entry sections of the report before you log in to the system. After you have entered your campaign results, you can download and print this information, complete with campaign name and number, from your computer. Updated instructions throughout the site will help guide you through the reporting process.
The extraordinary events that occurred during the 2001 campaign significantly affected workplace giving. In order to fully assess the impact on the CFC from coast to coast, it is important that we receive you electronic results no later than Friday, March 1, 2002. If you are unable to meet this deadline, if you have any questions or need technical assistance, please call Lisa Barber at 202/606-2564. Please remember to check our web page for the Form 1417 Registration procedures. We look forward to your feedback after you have tried our improved system.
CFC applications for local organizations and federations can be downloaded from our website (in English and Spanish). LFCCs are strongly encouraged to use the model application forms provided by OPM. Please note changes to this year's form are strictly cosmetic. The suggested opening date for acceptance of local applications is March 15, 2002. All local application decisions must be completed by the LFCC no later than May 6, 2002.
OPM is delighted to announce the 2002 OPM/CFC Regional Workshop schedule. The workshops bring together representatives of Local Federal Coordinating Committees (LFCC), Principal Combined Fund Organizations (PCFO) and CFC funded agencies to learn about the latest ways of making the campaign both responsive and successful. This year, workshops will be held in Jacksonville, FL (March 3-6), San Francisco, CA (March 17-20), and Chicago, IL (April 7-10).
We are once again authorizing PCFOs to include in their 2002-2003 CFC budget estimated travel expenses to support participation by the LFCC Chair or their designee at a regional meeting. Many LFCC members secure Federal agency sponsorship to attend the regional CFC workshops. In the event this is not feasible, PCFOs may cover these expenses for one member of the LFCC. Take a moment now to select your preferred location and mark your calendar! Registration information is available on the CFC website.
We look forward to seeing you!
