CPF looking for more members

Canadian Parents for French recently announced changes to registration tool and a drive for new members.

Many parents  children who attend the french immersion program at John Field Elementary School are members of the Canadian Parents for French and the organization has recently announced some news for their members, partners, supporters and sponsors.

Throughout the past two years the CPF has undergone several updates and improvements to their national brand. Changes have been showcased in their newsletters, e-communiqués, pamphlets and more which have all helped to pave the way to a new national website at www.cpf.ca.

Visitors and members will be able to find what they are looking for more efficiently organizers say. The CPF is hoping the new website will increase online membership and management. There are many assets to becoming a CPF member and they hope that the development of a brand new membership registration tool will aide people to not only “register and renew with ease, but also help people manage all aspects of their CPF membership account.”

It is hoped that the tool will enable people to “administer their own membership without waiting for confirmation, take care of address changes or other updates right from home, and should generally help the CPF experience become easier than ever before.”

As for local area parents, administrators and teachers, the John Field CPF PAC say there are many assets to joining the CPF and the more parents and people who become members the more money the local chapter will have to devote to programs and resources.

A large portion of the membership fee comes back to the school, organizers explained, and there is a real need to get more parents involved.

“There seems to be a small core of parents who get involved and volunteer and we need to increase those numbers in the future,” CPF member Helene Paranich explained. “We would like to do a membership drive to get more CPF memberships for next year which will help get us more funding for more programs for our school and allow us to continue to provide more benefits to our students.”

For more information on how to become a member as well as the benefits to the Hazelton French Immersion program, people can either visit the new CPF website or call John Field Elementary school and ask to talk to Paranich.
