CFA Society Poland has been conferred with a distinguished honor in the CFA Institute's "Most Outstanding Society" category, reflecting its stellar achievements throughout 2022. This accolade is the pinnacle of awards extended to CFA Societies globally by esteemed CFA Institute.
The Society Awards Programme stands as a testament to the relentless efforts of local CFA Societies that resonate with the overarching mission of CFA Institute. This mission champions the cause of elevating standards within the investment industry and fostering the professional development of individuals deeply entrenched in the financial sector. Annually, these awards shine a spotlight on several facets: the premier CFA Societies of a region, trailblazing projects that shape the financial markets, groundbreaking research initiatives, exemplary volunteers, and emerging leaders.
"The Society Awards Programme underscores the remarkable capabilities inherent in CFA Societies globally and delineates the quintessential role of an investment professional," articulates Prof. Krzysztof Jajuga, President of the Board, CFA Society Poland. "At their core, local CFA Societies consist of fiercely passionate professionals committed to elevating the financial sector, with a keen focus on safeguarding investor rights and upholding the highest professional ethics. Our recognition in the 'Most Outstanding Society' segment is a tribute to countless volunteers who invest their time to conceive invaluable educational, regulatory, and event-driven initiatives. It's to these stalwarts that I wholeheartedly dedicate this accolade."
The “Most Outstanding Society” award is meticulously curated, with four global associations being honored. Factors such as member strength play a pivotal role. CFA Society Poland emerged triumphant among societies boasting memberships ranging from 350 to 999. CFA Institute also bestowed honors upon compact yet dynamic entities like CFA Society Slovakia and CFA Society Portugal. Topping the list among colossal associations—encompassing over 1,000 CFA-titled professionals—was CFA Montréal. The rigorous evaluation process delves deep, examining elements like strategic alignment, corporate governance, educational mentoring for CFA Institute aspirants, the local resonance of the CFA brand, and the sophistication of operational workflows, to name a few.
"CFA Society Poland has evolved into a paragon of organizational maturity—a specialized professional bastion catering to employers, academic institutions, aspirants, and seasoned financial maestros," observes Monika Grabek, Executive Director, CFA Society Poland. "Our trajectory over the past decade has been meteoric, witnessing a twofold surge in active CFA-titled members, and cementing our reputation as a pivotal ally, predominantly in bolstering financial literacy among pivotal capital market stakeholders. The 'Most Outstanding Society' award is a testament to our illustrious journey and the myriad projects executed over nearly two decades."
The CFA Institute has, over the years, lauded the dynamism of CFA Society Poland, the most expansive CFA society in the CEE region. The society clinched this esteemed title eight years prior and was again spotlighted in 2022, securing the gold-plated project award in the "Outstanding Research Award" category.
