Join or Renew

Individuals joining for the first time pay dues upon activation of their membership and annually thereafter. Each season runs from July 1 – June 30, and dues are collected in the spring. If you are a member of CFA Institute (Affiliate, Regular, or CFA Charterholder), you will pay all your dues each year through the CFA Institute online system. If you are a Student or Local-Only member, your dues will be paid directly to the CFAMN office in Minneapolis by check or by credit card.
