Strategic committees


The Advocacy Committee speaks up about ethics, trust, and professional standards; supports fair and transparent financial markets and practices; and protects the interests of investors. We support societies, leaders, and other volunteers in communicating with members about advocacy initiatives, policy positions, and the Future of Finance. The Advocacy Committee reaches out to local industry groups, policymakers, media, and investors.

The Programming Committee helps members enhance their investment knowledge, professional practices, career development, and professional networks. The committee plans and executes approximately one to two events per month that provide opportunities for networking, professional education, career development, and/or technical training with the aim of achieving the recommended 20 continuing education credits every year. Committee members recruit thought leaders and prominent practitioners as speakers, and create and deliver events of interest to members.
