No Clue about Membership

So I passed CFA III but with only 3.5 years of experience. So technically I can’t be a CFA charter member… What exactly am I supposed to do? wait until I gain 4 years and apply? Do I apply for the Boston Society of Security Analyst before … or after? thanks for helping a clueless individual out.

If your company pays for membership you might as well apply now otherwise I will just wait until I have the 48 months experience
