Recognition for CE ParticipantsWe'll help you share your CE accomplishments with colleagues and employers.

Congratulations to Our Members Who Hit Their CE Milestones

For the first time in CFA Institute history, several of our members reached the 30-year milestone. This means that they’ve been dedicated to lifelong learning for 30 consecutive years. Congratulations to them and our other members celebrating milestones for 5, 10, 15, 20, and 25 years.

Watch the video below to see why 20-year milestone member John Clark, CFA, finds CE important, and why he’s proud to display his digital badge.

Once a year, when you renew your membership, you can also attest to your continuing education (CE) credits for the previous year.

In recognition of your commitment to continuing education, we’ll send you a letter acknowledging your achievement, and detailing how you can receive your CE recognition.

We provide recognition of both annual achievements and significant milestones of ongoing CE.
