CFA work experience evaluation as a member

Has anyone had any experience on work experiences assessment after becoming a member of CFA first? Not the self-assessment tool.

I’ve heard that after you become a member, their committee can give a more accurate evaluation.



I might be missing something here–and perhaps things have changed @ CFA Institute since I earned my charter in 2006–but I didn’t know one could become a ‘member’ without having met all of the requirements. Back in 2006, a candidate, even one who had passed all parts of the CFA exam, remained a candidate until s/he had the requisite work experience. Has that changed? If so, to what?
