CFA Society St. Louis has three classes of members: Charterholder, Regular, and Affiliate. Regular members and CFA Charterholders are eligible to vote as well as hold officer positions. An individual must first become a Regular member of CFA Institute to qualify for these membership classes. Please note that you may apply for Affiliate status to CFA Institute and CFA Society St. Louis if you are a Candidate and/or you do NOT intend to become a CFA Charterholder. You do not have to enroll in the CFA program or be a CFA Charterholder to become a member of CFA Society St. Louis or CFA Institute.
