Got a warning from CFA Institute for using the CFA Designation (need advice)
I recently got a warning e-mail from the CFA Institute for using the CFA designation without being a paid member. Some important facts to consider:
1) I mentioned “CFA Charterholder (2013-2015)” under the education tab in my LinkedIn profile
2) I NEVER used the CFA designation (my name, CFA) in any form be it LinkedIn profile, research reports or visiting cards as I feel it’s like showing off.
My only question is does point #1 warrant a warning? I already removed that fact from my LinkedIn profile as a precaution.
PS: I got my charter in Dec2016 and I paid for 1 year’s membership only to get the physical copy of the charter.
