Affect Public Policy

STA works with regulators and policy makers on issues that effect you and your firm. STA’s Political Action Committee, STAPAC, supports candidates for federal office who share STA’s values and beliefs.

Join one of the STAC networks of professionals who share your interests and concerns such as the Buy Side Forum, Women's Collective, or the Bond Club.


It's Fun

Events like the Golf Outing, Members Only Dinner and Mid-Winter meeting are offered at low or no cost - Just attending one or two events alone more than cover your membership dues.
