Outreach Committees

The purpose of the outreach committees are to raise awareness of the importance of the CFA brand and designation, CFA Institute, and CFA Society Toronto as a whole, within and outside of the investment community.  An outreach committees' representative serves as a liaison between committees and the CFA Society Toronto Board, and the management office on projects to raise awareness of CFA Society Toronto, CFA charter, and CFA Institute.  A key objective of this representative is to ensure that we foster relationships with top employers, regulators, and Ontario Business Schools with the goal of achieving recognition of a global designation that symbolizes knowledge, professionalism, and integrity.  This role works to educate and engage Society members regarding the CFA brand, as well as key regulatory and governance issues.

Awards & University Relations

Chair: Steve Balaban, CFA

Purpose of the Awards Committee is to organize, promote, and monitor CFA Society Toronto's Awards Program, which includes the CFA Institute Research Challenge (Ontario), scholarships to undergraduates and CFA Candidates, the CFA Society Toronto & Hillsdale Canadian Investment Research Award, and the CFA Society Toronto Fellowship Award.

The University Relations Committee works to build relationships with Ontario business schools' faculty and student associations to improve awareness of the CFA Program and highlight CFA Society Toronto's role in the investment community.  This is accomplished primarily through presentations to students, the annual scholarship program, and by fulfilling faculty and student requests for information or speakers.
