FISD Executive Committee Elections
All FISD members are invited to nominate candidates to fill 12 positions on the FISD Executive Committee (EC) for two-year terms which begin in January 2019. Positions are open for representatives in each of the three FISD constituency areas: exchanges, vendors (data, software, hardware, services), and consumer firms. View the current EC list. Please submit one nomination for your company with the campaign statements for both executives who will be representing your firm. Nominations will be accepted until November 26, then voting will begin on November 29. Nominate candidates from your firm now.

Volunteers Needed for Data Provider Evaluation Pilot
The FISD Executive Committee has approved a Pilot Program that will enable Data Providers (e.g. exchanges, traditional data vendors, index providers, etc.) to receive feedback related to their communications and product management programs.
The Data Provider Evaluation Program (DPEP) will enable Data Providers to review confidential feedback from members of the FISD’s Service Level & Communications Working Group. The feedback relates to how well a Data Provider adheres to the suggested recommendations contained in the Group’s Best Practices document.

The Working Group encourages more exchanges and Data Providers to volunteer for feedback and more FISD members to provide feedback (in a quick easy-to-use survey). Contact Nick Merritt for additional information.

Bronze level sponsorship's are $22,000 and their number is limited. We’re also open to creative sponsorship ideas—if you don’t see what you want listed, please contact Tracey Shumpert to discuss.

Study Group Forming on Machine-readable Invoices
FISD is forming a Study Group to discuss the opportunity for facilitating greater use of machine-readable invoices within the industry.  While this issue originated in the Consumer Constituent Group, we are interested in identifying other members who would like to engage on this topic.  Contact Tom Davin if you have questions or would like to be involved.
