2018 FISD Executive Committee Announced
The FISD Executive Committee (EC) is charged in the FISD Bylaws with representing the FISD membership and setting the broad direction for FISD activities. In this capacity, the EC reviews and approves new initiatives, provides guidance to working groups and the FISD/SIIA staff, identifies priorities for the FISD budget and staff resources, and selects new EC members when vacancies open. Fifteen member companies were chosen to serve a two-year term beginning in February.  Yousaf Hafeez of BT and Vice-Chair Steve Dickey of CBOE have reprised their roles as Chair and Vice-Chair respectively, as has Marcy Pike of Fidelity, as Secretary. Congratulations to new EC members: CPPIB, 3d Innovations and Vela, and to returning incumbents. The complete list of Executive Committee members can be viewed here

Consumer Workshop Conducted in NYC and London
Earlier this month, FISD moderated workshops in London and New York for consumer members to share their thoughts on management and organizational issues. The topics focused on organizational structure, tools, managing relationships with internal customers, and employee recruitment and development. FISD plans to offer a third workshop via teleconference for other interested consumer members and publish the findings of these workshops as a resource for members. Contact Tom Davin for details

FISD Launches Women’s Speaker Bureau
Member firms have increasingly requested to see greater gender equity on event programs. In response, FISD is developing a Women’s Speaker Bureau to have a deeper understanding of the available speaker pool.  Women who would like to volunteer to speak should send their name, title, company name, contact information, preferred locations for speaking and tags for the topics they are able to cover (e.g. data management, MiFID II, cost savings, vendor management) to Tracey Shumpert. FISD will use this information to issue speaker invitations. Please feel free to spread the word to your colleagues and clients for their contributions as well. Contact Tracey Shumpert with any questions.
