“Contributions from members foster the ecosystem for all stakeholders” John Hucker, CFA (President, Swiss Finance + Technology Association)
We believe that a strong spirit of volunteering is an essential characteristic of a sustainable association and to fostering the Swiss FinTech ecosystem. Volunteers are our most valuable resource. Nothing would be possible without the passion, energy, and dedication of members who get involved to lead the way or help support meaningful projects.
Our board, chapters, and committees are all comprised of volunteers which are collectively supported by a small staff. We appreciate the time and effort required as well as how rewarding the involvement can be for volunteers.
There is an overwhelming range of demand for support from the Association, but nothing can get started without a dedicated volunteer show leadership.
Our website as well as Activity Report in 2016 and 2017 provide a broad overview of the impact our volunteers have created. Our volunteers want to share their thoughts and invite you to join them by getting active.
Please note that all volunteering with Swiss Finance + Technology Association is unpaid.
