Join Our CFA Society Community

Make a difference in the future of the profession with membership to a local society

Our CFA Society® community works to raise professional standards, offer relevant professional learning programming, and advocate for local interests in more than 150 global markets.

When you apply to become a regular member of CFA Institute, you are required to apply to a local society. The information in your application will be reviewed by the local society you select. You can elect whether you want to join the society after your application is approved. Though voluntary for regular membership to CFA Institute, membership to your local society is your passport to a network of investment professionals in your market.

Regular members can add and switch societies without going through the society application process. This can be done during the renewal process and from the Manage Your Membership page.

When you apply to become an affiliate member of CFA Institute, membership to a local society is required. Requirements to become an affiliate member of a society vary by society. We invite you to find a society near you and explore their requirements for affiliate membership.
