Name Change Reflects History
CFA Society of Atlanta is now Atlanta Society of Finance and Investment Professionals, ASFIP
By George Chen, CFA
The Atlanta Society of Finance and Investment Professionals (formerly the CFA Society of Atlanta) promotes the highest standards of ethics, education, and professional excellence.
A member society of the CFA Institute, the Atlanta society was founded in 1960 as a volunteer organization. It currently has more than 1,300 members, which it serves through professional development, education, and networking events. Other membership benefits include access to local job postings and the latest news and updates from the CFA Institute and other associations.
Our society undertook a name change this year to return to the origins of our heritage. By recognizing the investment and finance community in Atlanta (and Georgia) consists not only of CFA charter holders but professionals with other designations and certifications, we are opening our doors to a wide variety of investment and financial services professionals from sole proprietorships all the way up to Fortune 500 companies. By expanding membership to the entire financial and investment community in the area through new associate classes (Program Participant and Student), we can expand the breadth and depth of services that we offer to our membership.
We invite you to visit our website at www.asfip.org and consider becoming a member. You may also follow us on Twitter or LinkedIn by searching Atlanta Society of Finance and Investment Professionals or ASFIP.
