Rep. Pressley Honors 100th Anniversary of State Securities Administrators Association
WASHINGTON – Today, Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley (MA-07), a member of the House Financial Services Committee, introduced a resolution honoring the 100th Anniversary of the North American Securities Administrators Association (NASAA). Comprised of securities administrators from all 50 States, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Canada, and Mexico, NASAA is the voice of state securities agencies responsible for capital formation and grassroots investor protection.
“Over the last 100 years, state securities regulators in Massachusetts have played a crucial role in protecting and educating American investors,” said Congresswoman Pressley. “NASAA and the regulators they represent have been leaders in ensuring stability and equity. I’m proud to honor 100 years of the NASAA’s important investor-protection work and I look forward to 100 more.”
“As the North American Securities Administrators Association proudly celebrates its 100th anniversary, we are honored by the introduction of this bipartisan House Resolution,” said NASAA President and Vermont Commissioner of Financial Regulation Michael S. Pieciak. “The Resolution affirms our members’ vital role in protecting Main Street investors and facilitating responsible capital formation for small businesses all across our country. For the past century, NASAA has supported the work of its members who serve on the frontlines of investor protection, safeguarding the savings and the futures of countless hardworking Americans. Our message today remains as simple and as powerful as it was a 100 years ago – when the interests of Main Street investors are put first our capital markets, our economy, and our country all succeed. We thank Rep. Pressley for her leadership in sponsoring the Resolution, and look forward to our second century of service.”
“I join Congress in recognizing the 100th anniversary of the founding of NASAA, which has been a strong and effective advocate for investor protection, while also serving as a tremendous resource to Massachusetts in our leadership role in protecting Main Street investors,” said Massachusetts Secretary of the Commonwealth William F. Galvin. “We are proud to be active participants in NASAA.”
