Contributions to the dinner will support CFA’s new Consumer Research Institute (CRI).  Organizations and individuals purchasing at least two tables, or contributing at least $5,000, will receive recognition as founding supporters of the CRI.

The Consumer Research Institute (CRI) will sponsor research about consumers and their participation in the consumer marketplace.  The research, which will be released to the public, will focus on consumer needs, preferences, and marketplace experiences.  Some of this research will be undertaken in partnership with other organizations. While the research will be managed by CFA staff and overseen by the CFA Board of Directors, we anticipate creation of an advisory board with a broad range of expertise. Contributors to the Consumer Research Institute will receive recognition of their support.
