Dear CFA Candidate,
I hope this note finds you safe and well. My name is Julie Toler, and I am serving this year as chair of your CFA Societies Texas board of directors. Following CFA Institute’s announcement yesterday morning about the postponement of the June exam, my fellow board members and I wanted to reach out — as personally as possible at the moment — and share a virtual fistbump of both commiseration and encouragement with you.
Each of us has vivid memories of our own personal journey through the challenge of CFA exams, but yours is really going to top all of ours by far!
While I’m sure the postponement came as a disappointment, I hope that the extra study time may serve as a silver lining for you as well. It is our sincerest hope that this interruption doesn’t dishearten you in your CFA pursuit. Whenever you choose to reschedule, know that your CFA community is behind you and cheering you on every step of the way!
In upcoming weeks and months, we are here for you. Our CFA-Texas board as well as your local CFA society leaders in Austin, San Antonio, Houston and Dallas-Fort Worth are eager to help support you in the months ahead. We invite and encourage you to connect with us on LinkedIn, and we look forward to meeting you in person at future society events over many years to come! In the meantime, we are thinking of you and wishing you and yours the very best of health as we navigate the months ahead.
