Of the many ways our members serve the profession, participation on the governing bodies that direct key initiatives at CFA Institute is an essential contribution. The following list of standing committees and appointed volunteer roles represents only a fraction of the ways members collaborate with staff to meet our mission.

In some cases, committees recruit volunteers for specific skills or purposes. Committees have openings annually or on a rolling basis. For annual appointments, nominations are typically accepted in the first quarter of the calendar year. Committees then review applications over the summer for appointments beginning 1 September. Appointments to these committee seats are highly competitive and usually are awarded to members meeting particular criteria and with demonstrated past service with CFA Institute.
