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.

Do you have an idea not already listed above? Nearly every society project or initiative has been invented and championed by a member. Please share your ideas with us!
Each year, the Society hosts a volunteer appreciation event where volunteers, who assisted over the past program year, gather to celebrate their accomplishments. Each year, Society staff recognize a volunteer of the year recipient in addition to other key volunteer project leaders. Individuals interested in volunteering are welcome to attend as well.
