Our Society thrives because of a dedicated network of volunteers. An important part of our activities, output and society management is organised by volunteers, mostly organised in committees. This assures a wider range of high-quality meetings on topical themes with up-to-date knowledge and expertise, as well as activities, with multiple "hands / heads". This way we are equipped to advance education, knowledge and networking. Our volunteers are vital in helping us develop the services we offer our members and to accomplish our mission to continually shape and strengthen the investment industry.
We invite you to take an active role in the Society’s development, share your experiences and contribute to the future of your profession. Supported by other volunteers and the CFA Society Netherlands staffed office, you will have an opportunity to develop a range of soft skills, gain recognition and make an impact on the membership, the Society and the wider profession, as well as meet with like-minded professionals.

Our Committee structure
Content-specific committees focus on specific professional/topical areas; following the latest developments, carrying out research, or organizing events. The knowledge that they accumulate is regularly published in the VBA Journaal or on our website. See this overview of the Content Committees and Working groups.
Activity committees are responsible for the smooth running of a number of annually recurring events, activities and projects. Find a list of our Activity committees.
Governance committees ensure the quality of our programs and the sound operation of our society.
Ad-hoc volunteering on an event or project is also possible if you have limited time or special expertise to contribute.
You must be a member of CFA Society Netherlands in order to volunteer for a committee. Some committees may have limited capacity or additional requirements for joining.
