As the globe continues to grapple with COVID-19 and our doors remain temporarily shuttered to in-person events, we hope you will join us on Thursday, June 25th for a virtual CFAW member reception.
This Annual Meeting is a chance to celebrate the end of a remarkable program year, welcome new Board Members, thank our dedicated volunteers who make this organization possible, and toast to the accomplishments of the 2019-2020 program year.
We invite you to hear from CFAW Board Chair, Matt Malone, CFA who will give us a brief recap of the year and hand off the baton to the incoming Board Chair for 2020-2022.
We'll hear from our various committee chairs on goals and initiatives, as well as a special update from CFA Institute's Managing Director and Co-Lead of Education, Stephen Horan, CFA, CIPM.
This is our last major event before the summer season commences, so don't skip out just because it's virtual!
It is also a Members Only event, so please RSVP in advance!
