 How to Get Involved

Society Leadership Opportunities

Each year we see over 70 society volunteers for CFAMN in a wide variety of ways. One of the best ways to optimize your membership with CFA Society Minnesota is to get involved on a Society initiative or committee. Volunteering heightens your visibility and puts you in direct contact with other professionals in the industry. Whether you are a university student, CFA Candidate, or CFA Charterholder, there are casual, enjoyable ways to get involved in CFAMN and meet other members.

To get started as a volunteer: 

  1. Contact Us: Send an email of interest to Events & Members Services Manager - Megan Millett. Please attach your resume for reference.

  2. Interview: Schedule a time to meet with Society Staff to learn more about the organization and discuss what committee or project might be a good fit for your interests.
