CAFSA is a member-lead association governed by volunteer committees and an elected Board of Trustees representing the communities we serve. The following leadership opportunities allow members to expand their role within the association and take part in the decision-making process.

Training Trust:

The Training Trust Fund is an employee benefit plan established to accept and distribute contributions for the training of apprentices and other craft persons. Trustees safeguard all training contributions and ensure that they are used appropriately and responsibly.

Unilateral Apprenticeship Committee (UAC)

The UAC is responsible for the administration and enforcement of the Apprenticeship Rules & Regulations and Standards which include supervising the training of apprentices and their advancement through the program, ensuring apprentices’ proper on-the-job training and school attendance, and imposing penalties due to violation of the program rules and regulations.

We urge you to join us in our mission of enhancing and improving our growing industry.
