As described in CFA Society Los Angeles’ 3-Year Strategic Plan, the Board of Governors believes it is critical to develop strong relationships with members' employers. Specifically, the Strategic Plan calls for establishing an Ambassador Program.
The Ambassador Program is comprised of active CFA Society Los Angeles leaders and members—Ambassadors—who will become key allies in raising awareness of the Society and the value it delivers to members. Additionally, Ambassadors will help inform their respective firms about Society events, programs, continuing professional development, thought leadership, and other activities. Ambassadors will also help shape the voice of the Society within the context of their firms and help both the Society and CFA Institute more effectively navigate members' firms in ways that are mutually beneficial.
Below is a list of Ambassadors in our Pilot program. They and their respective firms were asked to participate due to their leadership and great involvement in prior CFALA activities.
