just passed the exam without 4 years of work experience… i wonder if i could do something first?? for example, ask my 2 sponsors to submit the sponsor statements??? or should i do nothing until i have at least 4 years of work experience??? i found the following from “Membership Types and Requirements”: *If you have less than 48 months of qualified work experience, you may be considered for affiliate membership. * If you have at least 48 months of qualified work experience, you may be considered for regular membership (required to receive your CFA charter). so can i apply for affiliate member first??
i think so
Yes. Then we you have the experience, you can re-apply / re-submit and your sponsor statements will already be on file, making the charter award happen more quickly.
