FMA Connects Students to the Financial World
Are you interested in finance, banking and investments?
Then the UW-Eau Claire student chapter of the Financial Management Association (FMA) is the organization for you. Financial Management Association International is the global leader in developing and disseminating knowledge about financial decision making. Membership in the UW-Eau Claire chapter of FMA establishes you as an integral part of a growing network of students, professionals, and academics throughout the world.
Networking and interaction within the organization are key elements of FMA’s success. The organization holds bi-monthly meetings to build relationships among its members. At these meetings, business professionals speak to members about the financial world and various career options. Past speakers have included:
- Neal Frey, Market Manager President, Bremer Bank
- Matt Simons, Business Banking Underwriter, Associated Bank
- Stephanie Rasmussen, Loan Supervisor, Royal Credit Union
- John and Bonnie Hayward, Financial Planners, Raymond James Financial Services
Time is set aside before and after each meeting for members to network with the speaker and each other.
FMA has five executive positions and eight committees so many opportunities exist within the organization for members to get involved and develop their leadership skills. Are you interested in the stock market and investing? Check out FMA’s Investment Committee which organizes and makes decisions regarding FMA's assets and investments.
Every semester, FMA members take affordable and informative trips to cool places, such as the Chicago Board of Trade and the Federal Reserve. Members also participate in social events and community service activities, such as decorating a senior center, helping with Special Olympics, and raising money for a food bank.
