About Your MFRC
The North of 60 MFRC is not governed by a Board of Directors however
works closely with an Advisory Committee comprised of 51% of CF
military spouses or family members. Because Advisory committees
are not incorporated boards, the full scope of accountability lies within
the chain of command through the ASU Commanding Officer.
Vision – still to come
Mission – still to come
Values –still to come

picked up at the MFRC or emailed to you directly.
