FCFT 's COPE Fund / Political Action

   Contributions Pooled for Education (COPE)


In an attempt to provide members with a more efficient and interactive process, FCFT will solicit member candidate preferences through a variety of means. These may include balloting, web-based voting, interactive member meetings with candidates, and as well as other formats.

Regardless of the format used, FCFT members are assured to always be given adequate advanced notification of the process being utilized and associated timelines, and all members will be given the opportunity to vote for the candidate(s) of their choice.
