Welcome to CFA Society Washington, DC!

Message from the Chair



Dear CFAW Members,

I am honored and excited to serve as our Society's new Board Chair. I look forward to continuing the positive momentum we've built over the last several years as CFAW continues to pursue its mission to deliver increasing value to our Member community.

I hope to see many of you at our September 21st Annual Reception at the 20 F Street NW Conference Center Roof Top Terrace, where we will kick off the new program year. In the meantime, I'd like to share two important Society leadership updates.

First, the Board held its first planning meeting on Saturday July 30th to review and begin refining our Strategic Plan, to define our highest priorities for the coming year, and to set the stage for the critical work of our Society's volunteer committees. That planning and preparation work will continue through August and we will finalize and communicate out progress in September, at the September 21st Annual Member Reception.

Second, the CEO Search Committee and Board have completed our process of recruiting and hiring a new executive leader. I'm extremely pleased to introduce CFAW's new President and CEO, Bill Scott, CAE. Bill is a professional association executive, with 18 years of experience managing non-profit organizations including in CEO and Executive Director roles. His specialties include organizational and program management, budgeting and financial operations, strategic planning, and certification. Bill graduated from Virginia Tech, where he earned a degree in Finance, and he is a Certified Association Executive (CAE), the association industry's top credential.

I am excited for Bill's leadership as our Society's new chief executive and I'm confident that he's the right person to help us move our organization forward. Please join me in welcoming him to CFAW!
