In each of the EFA`s 320 regions across the country, local and national nonprofit organizations work closely with volunteer federal employee committees to develop marketing strategies for the campaign and address the maintenance and distribution of federal staff contributions to the charities they have selected. As early as 1948, the Federal Personnel Council (composed of the Agency`s human resources directors) attempted to ensure uniformity and stability in fundraising efforts by publishing guidelines for departments and agencies. However, the Council had no enforcement powers and services and agencies generally continued to follow their own trends in issuing tenders in the workplace. CFC campaigns are geographically delineated along the county lines. .
