This opportunity is sponsored by the FINRA Investor Education Foundation. Please share the press release with your entire team and anyone else who may be interested! While the AFC certification program offers outstanding education and opportunities, NMCRS does not require participation in this program. NMCRS volunteers who are currently Spouse Fellow AFC candidates share that the AFC certification does not integrate seamlessly into our Mission or Vision. We welcome AFC Candidates and AFC-qualified volunteers into our programs, however NMCRS training is still required for NMCRS caseworkers. This is a unique and challenging program and one which I encourage you to share with the widest possible audience of interested individuals.
