08-11-2010 CFALA Happy Hour Chat Series


The CFA Society of Los Angeles would like to invite you to attend our Happy Hour Chat series presented by the Career Development Committee. The Happy Hour chats consist of 3 individual events that offer you the chance to learn communication tips for business, gain knowledge from well established individuals in the finance industry and explore how to build a strong network.


These events are aimed at helping you gain tips and build your skill set to move up the “Financial Career Ladder.” Although the events will be focused toward individuals in the midpoint of their career (5-15 years), we encourage everyone to take advantage.


For each event, the presentation portion will last for 30 minutes and then you have the opportunity to socialize with your peers and the presenters. One drink hosted per person with appetizers included.
