 Ambassador Program

​The program is an initiative by the CFA Society Ottawa designed to drive employer engagement and promote values and ethical standards of the CFA Charter. The program strives to identify ambassadors from local employer organizations and build a network of exceptional investment professionals in the National Capital Region. Ambassadors are member volunteers who help to promote the high value of the CFA Charter to the firm's senior management and staffing officers, while informing fellow members about the local Society's initiatives, membership and candidacy information. The program forms a community of investment professionals that provides a unique platform for employer engagement. Our ambassadors benefit from visibility within their firms, as well as, externally across CFA Society's extensive network. A list of current ambassadors and participating employers can be found below.
