Affiliate Membership and the use of CFA designation on business cards

Can an Affiliate member of a CFA society (CFA Society India in my case) use the ‘CFA’ designation on business cards or is it exclusive only to the Regular Members?

It is exclusive to charterholders.

If you don’t have the charter, you can’t claim the CFA designation. Otherwise you can get yourself in trouble with the CFA Institute. Cheers.
