Welcome to the CFA Society of Dallas-Fort Worth!
Letter from the President
Welcome to the new CFA/DFW website! We hope that you enjoy the new look and increased functionality. We are in the process of activating certain features on the website. If you have any problems registering for events, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’ve had a great year so far, with a variety of interesting programs and social events, and more to come in the spring. In response to your input, we will be adding several exciting opportunities in the spring.
First, we are starting a series of affinity group lunches. These informal networking sessions, some with speakers and/or panels, will bring together members with common interests. Registration emails will be coming soon for the first of these, targeted at Women in Finance. Watch for others, and if you don’t see a group meeting that fits your needs, please suggest one.
We will also be offering a lower cost multi-event ticket, at $100 for three luncheons or receptions. Higher costs and reduced contributions from CFA Institute has forced a meeting price increase this year, so we hope this will be an attractive alternative. Please find this option available when registering for lunch and reception events.
Finally, our Annual Forecast Dinner on February 13th will be followed by the first ever CFA Societies of Texas Investor Symposium on the 14th and the Annual Texas Investment Portfolio Symposium (TIPS) & CFA Research Challenge on the 15th. We look forward to seeing you at these events.
With warm wishes for a wonderful New Year,
The CFA designation recognizes knowledge, skills, and abilities in security analysis and portfolio management, emphasizing the highest ethical and professional standards. To learn more about the CFA designation and program, contact CFA Institute

CFA: The Gold Standard
"The Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) qualification is roughly equivalent to a specialized postgraduate finance degree, including a mixture of economics, ethics, law, and accountancy. It is much liked by employers in financial services. Whereas there are tens of thousands of finance degrees available around the world, ranging from the excellent to the worthless, there is only one CFA, managed and examined by an American association of financial professionals, the CFA Institute."
