You are encouraged to attend the General Meeting of CFA Society Netherlands, to be held on 19 September 2017 from 17:00 to 19:00 at the Crowne Plaza Amsterdam South. The General Meeting will be preceded by a presentation on developing your communication skills, and followed by networking drinks.
You will have read in various member communications and press releases that the board of CFA Society Netherlands has been in discussions with VBA beleggingsprofessionals regarding closer cooperation between the two organisations. The mission, vision and strategy of the two organisations are quite similar and our members work side-by-side in the industry.
Following a two-year period of intense discussions with VBA and CFA Institute, which included a steering committee, working groups, many meetings, and consultations with members and advisors, CFA Society Netherlands and VBA beleggingsprofessionals have concluded that the best way forward is a full merger of the two organisations.
On 11 July 2017 the boards of both CFA Society Netherlands and VBA beleggingsprofessionals approved putting the proposal forward to our members for approval in a special GM in September.
We encourage all members to join this General Meeting to learn more about the details of the merger, to discuss the proposal in depth and to review some of the draft documentation for the merger and the merger planning.
We will then ask your approval to enter into the next phase of the merger process, i.e. to officially file the merger with the Kamer van Koophandel (Chamber of Commerce). The merger will then be final later this year after the legal documentation has been formalised and there are no objections to the KvK filing.
The General Meeting will be preceded by a workshop given by Speech Republic on making an impact by using your communications skills. This career development workshop earns you one CE credit.
