You may remember that on May 31, 2013, CFA Society Milwaukee launched Investors 1st Day across the state of Wisconsin with a proclamation by Gov. Walker. Putting Investors First month will be held in May across the globe, CFA Societies worldwide will be participating.
To close this year's Putting Investors First month, CFA Society Milwaukee is again sponsoring the Make A Difference - Wisconsin conference. We are doing this for two reasons 1) the conference itself is of tremendous benefit to our community through its education of investors, and 2) the conference raises funds for the Make A Difference mission which is to provide financial literacy programs and resources that empower students to make sound financial decisions.
CFA Society Milwaukee is proud to be a supplier of volunteers to Make A Difference - Wisconsin as well as a sponsor of its annual conference. As an organization, we have partnered with Make A Difference for a number of years.
