Join a CFA® Society

Make a difference in the future of the profession on a local level

When you apply for membership with CFA Institute, you will also apply for membership in a CFA society. Society membership is voluntary and highly recommended. Your application to a society is an introduction to a community of professionals who are committed to the highest standards of ethics, education, and professional excellence.

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.

Affiliate members must apply for membership in and be approved by all societies they wish to join.
