Meetings are open to the public, and members and their families are encouraged to attend. CFAC works with Cardinal Innovations to accomplish its goals and makes regular reports to the Cardinal Innovations Board of Directors. The organization and all activities undertaken by the CFAC are consistent with the North Carolina Legislation G. S. 122C 170.
