CPF was established in 1971 as APA California’s nonprofit foundation. If you are a member of APA California, you are already a member of CPF. Relying on your donations and fund-raising activities like the auction, CPF annually awards approximately $50,000 in student scholarships and memberships in APA. In 2011, a new record was set at the APA California conference in Santa Barbara as CPF raised $30,000 in auction and raffle proceeds to be applied to student scholarships!
The 2012 Frank Wein/CPF Auction will take place on Monday, October 22 at the APA California Annual Conference in Rancho Mirage, CA.
This year's auction coordinator is Darcy Kremin. If you have questions about the auction, have items you would like to donate to the auction, or would like to volunteer to help out with auction planning and coordination, please contact Darcy at firstname.lastname@example.org or

APA Section Contributions for the
Since 2000, we have invited each APA California Section to donate an item with regional significance for the auction. In the past we were pleased to receive such diverse contributions as wines, specialty foods and conference registrations. The invitation has been extended again this year and we are looking forward to the participation from all eight APA California Sections.
