Ongoing Benefits of Society Membership:

Networking. CFA Society Washington, D.C. offers its members the opportunity for education, recognition and an industry network. Society programs are designed to enlighten members about issues of importance in the profession, and to provide a forum for the interchange of ideas.


Luncheons and Seminars. The Society sponsors educational meetings covering professional topics, corporate presentations, seminars and field trips. This provides members the benefit of staying well informed of trends that affect the financial industry and the ability to participate in dynamic and educational programs at discounted rates.  Speakers include prominent economists, CEO's, investment strategists, leading analysts and fund managers. Meetings are generally held twice monthly from September through June. All members receive discounted registration fees and are eligible to attend several events each year that are free for members only.


Career Resources. The Society offers a Job Board for members which also serves as a clearinghouse, matching resumes of members with opportunities offered by prospective employers and executive search firms.  Society also posts  job openings in the Employment section of this website. In addition, the Society sponsors at least one Career Event each year for investment professionals and students at local colleges and universities.


CFA Review Classes. The Society has partnered with Schweser to offer study classes for levels I, II, and III.  Also, there are two opportunities for candidates to take practice exams the month before the actual CFA exam.


CFA Scholarships. The Society, in conjunction with the CFA Institute, offers scholarships for the CFA program to Society members. The scholarship defrays exam expenses.

Other events offer the opportunity for fellowship among members. These include a fall kick-off, a holiday gathering and an annual meeting. Society events and news are posted on the Society web site.
