Society Volunteering

Thank you for showing interest in our volunteer opportunities. As a professional membership organization, volunteers help us achieve our broadening goals. Our strategic initiatives span 3 key pillars: Member Value, Member & Candidate Engagement, and Advocacy & Community Outreach.  These are outlined below and if you find an area that suits your interests, please let us know.

Member Value

  • Working with the Program Committee  to evaluate and prioritize topics, pursue high quality presenters, and execute programs; create opportunities for member interaction/socialization at events
  • Average commitment is one to four hours per month (to include committee meetings)  

Example: If you believe you could help to secure a speaker (s) on a topic of import to our Society, you could volunteer to spearhead a monthly lunch or virtual event.  

Member & Candidate Engagement

  • Working with the Membership & Candidate Services Committee  to attract and support CFA program candidates
  • Average commitment is one to two hours per month (to include committee meetings)  

Examples: Help with membership renewal and help plan networking events for member and candidate engagement  

Advocacy & Community Outreach

  • Working with  Advocacy & Community Outreach Committee to raise profile of Society and CFA program with employers (some overlap with Membership & Candidate engagement committee)
  • Average commitment is one to two hours per month (to include committee meetings)  

Examples: Being a liaison between the Society and key professors at your alma mater (if in Tennessee) to increase awareness of the CFA Program/message to their students and participate in a college or corporate presentations to introduce and discuss the CFA Program and help in the development and execution of outreach programs to local universities and firms.

Research Challenge 

  • Working with Greater Tennessee Research Challenge Committee to advance the shared mission in partnership with the CFA Institute

  • Average commitment is one to two hours per month (to include 

    committee meetings) beginning in the Summer and ending in February

  • Other volunteer opportunities:  mentor, grader, or judge

Financial Literacy Initiative

  • Help to shape future financial literacy initiatives within the Society and community at large with our partner Junior Achievement of Middle Tennessee
  • Average commitment is one to three hours per month on an annual basis 

Our mission is to equip members to be leaders in our community by promoting the value of the CFA designation and facilitating the exchange of ideas and resources for the ultimate benefit of Middle Tennessee.
