Membership references - using 1 who *doesn't* relate to qualifying work experience?
I’m applying for regular society membership now. My qualifying work experience was several years ago – 2 of my references are from that job, including my direct supervisor from back then – so far so good.
But for my 3rd reference, I’m using (or planning to use) my current supervisor – for a job that definitely doesn’t count as qualifying work experience. I had assumed that would be ok – I don’t see anything in the guidance that *all* of your references have to speak to your qualifying work experience. But the questions the form asks – about whether my primary full-time job meets the qualifying work experience requirements – she would have to answer “no” to.
Anyone run into this or know how to handle? I’ve sent CFAI a couple emails asking for help and have received no response.
