CFI Now: July 14 Webcast

Thank you to our sponsors, all who donated and everyone who tuned in July 14 for the webcast!

We raised a total of $12,035 for Feeding America and the National Restaurant Association Employee Relief Fund.

The impact of COVID-19 on public health and the economy has altered consumer perception and behavior in unprecedented ways. Which of these changes are temporary and which will result in lasting behavioral transformations?


This event took place on July 14. You are welcome to donate to support the charities.

CFI members have access to view the recording through the CFI member portal.
