The Investment Industry Association of Canada (IIAC) seeks nominations for the 2017 class of IIAC Investment Industry Hall of Fame Inductees. The deadline to submit nominations is Friday, May 5, 2017 (5:00 p.m. ET). The IIAC Investment Industry Hall of Fame honours excellence, integrity and leadership in Canada’s investment industry. 

​​“We are reaching out to executives in the financial sector to put forth names of outstanding individuals who have demonstrated vision and leadership in building successful careers, contributed to the vitality of Canada’s investment industry and capital markets, and given back to their communities,” said Ian Russell, IIAC President and CEO. 

A maximum of four living and four posthumous candidates are inducted into the IIAC Investment Industry Hall of Fame annually. The Inductees are chosen by members of the IIAC Hall of Fame Selection Committee—an independent Committee—comprised of distinguished Canadians who work, or have worked, in the investment industry, business, politics, law or academia.

 Public Awareness

This year, and as part of our ongoing public awareness initiative, CFA Society Winnipeg, was represented at the Human Resource & Leadership Conference at RBC Convention Centre on October 25th and 26th.

One of our strategic goals over the recent years has been to expand the brand awareness of the CFA Charter and Program to the employer community in Manitoba. Our booth at the conference will aim to achieve just that - connect directly with the local HR community to highlight our skills and hopefully broaden the range of opportunities available to CFA Charterholders right here at home.

Many HR professionals stopped by to chat and those interested received our brochures, as an added incentive, we offered 1 free job posting to our jobboard if they contacted us indicating they met us at the HRMAM.

Thank you to our volunteers, Simon, Craig, Joe & Shaila.
