      Just wondering as it’s a good time to think about membership now. Are there sufficient benefits to CFA Institute membership to join as an associate member? Any thoughts from people who joined?

      Associate membership was not worth it for me (I was looking at it purely from networking). $500 a year for networking opportunities – unless you’re literally targeting firms that are active in CFA Institute activities, it might be better spent elsewhere. I’m not sure what other benefits it offers.

      I was an associate member for a year, I joined for networking as well. It wasn’t very worth it for me, but I don’t think I put in a lot of effort into events and volunteering as recommended.

      I’m renewing – work pays for it and I benefit from the events they organise, such as free mock exam workshops!
