Spouse Fellows Gathering Norfolk 2018

Society of FINRA Foundation Fellows

The Society of FINRA Foundation Fellows (SF3) is a volunteer-led assembly of candidates and graduates of the FINRA Foundation Military Spouse Fellowship program.

The goals of SF3 are to foster collaboration, focus on improving program engagement, and forward the Spouse Fellows' mission of supporting military members and families.

SF3's National Chapter consists of the FINRA Foundation's Financial Readiness Manager and representatives from AFCPE® and the Association of Military Banks of America (AMBA). SF3 is further divided into five regions—Northeast, Southeast, West, Europe, and Pacific. Each Regional Chapter is led by an ambassador appointed by and reporting up to the National Chapter.

SF3 Regional Ambassadors determine the needs of the Spouse Fellows in their region and work together to better serve their military communities. Through regular meetings, chapter members discuss issues such as how to improve communications with the military community, how to broaden the marketing strategy for the Spouse Fellowship program, post-certification employment, and what career success looks like.

SF3 Foundation and National Chapter Co-Chairs

The National Chapter Co-Chairs have oversight of the Regional Ambassadors and lead quarterly, biannually and/or annual meetings. They are also responsible for assisting Regional Ambassadors as needed.
