Welcome STA 2022 Board of Governors: Serving Our Industry And Communities

by Kate McAllister
Global Liquidity Partners & STA Chair

As we kick off a new year, STA is pleased to announce its 2022 Board of Governors and Advisors. The composition of the 20-person STA Board, measured by its geography and representative business models, is strong and diverse. We are also pleased with the number of women this year, nearly 50 percent, which is a testament to our ongoing objective of promoting women in finance. We thank these individuals for making this commitment to serve STA, and in doing so, highlight the importance of giving back.

Serving others has always been at the core of STA’s mission. While our advocacy for strong markets and educational events on key industry issues are critical parts of what we do, so too is our commitment to doing right by others. Using our platform and opportunities for the greater good we leave this world and our industry better than we found it.

Service to our communities is one aspect of this commitment. Service to our fellow securities industry professionals is another. Each of STA’s 24 regional affiliates across the U.S. and Canada is governed by a board of volunteers, who manage everything from event logistics to industry advocacy to allocating fundraising budgets. These efforts equate to great experiences and more meaningful interactions among industry members, which result in better markets.

Please join me in congratulating the 2022 STA Board of Governors and Advisors. I look forward to working with them this year as we advance the goals of STA.

“At the end of the day it’s not about what you have or even what you’ve accomplished…it’s about who you’ve lifted up, who you’ve made better. It’s about what you’ve given back.”
– Denzel Washington

US SEC Loan Reporting: Ops Cost of Transparency
The operational and legal challenges of complying with the US Securities and Exchange Commission’s potential requirement to report information on securities loan transactions to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority could outweigh the benefits of transparency to investors, say operations and legal experts, including STA President Jim Toes.
