CFA Association Russia held its Annual General Meeting with all active members of the CFA community on February 21.

Neil Withers, President of CFA Russia, began the meeting with a short introductory speech, thanked everyone for showing up, and proceeded with the meeting’s formal agenda.

A new Board of Directors was acclaimed, without dissent, by the members present at the meeting. In 2017, the Board of Directors has 14 members, including two newcomers – Boris Tawakkoli and Alexander Gorshenin. One can find the biographies of all board members and their statements of intent here. The new board consists of the following members:


  • Neil Withers, CFA, CFA Association Russia, President

CFA Russia’s president also thanked Natalia Sorokina and Gokce Tezel, who are no longer board members, for their service.


Afterwards, Neil gave a presentation, focusing on the current state of the association and its strategic priorities in 2017. At this moment, CFA Russia plans to focus on the following areas:

  • Membership value and its renewal rate
  • The outreach program to regions
  • Education
  • Community and advocacy
  • Media and impact on the financial community
  • The CFA Institute Research Challenge: growth and learning


In 2016, CFA Russia’s Board of Directors worked more actively and productively, meeting over 10-times throughout the year. The board maintained quorum during all its meetings and became an efficient strategic management body with a clear vision and strategic priorities. The new Board of Directors hopes this positive tendency will continue in 2017 and onwards.
