SSA President's Letter - November 2015

By Patrick Burke, SSA President

The seasons seem to change faster and faster each year and change is the appropriate theme for this month’s SSA President’s letter. Given that this will be my second holiday season serving as the President of the SSA, it signals that it is time to prepare for a change in SSA’s leadership.  The change in leadership provides an opportunity to assess what is working well and what can be done better in the future. It also allows us to reset our priorities to better address the needs of the changing landscape of our industry.

This year, as the Board assessed the effectiveness of SSA, they recognized a need for a renewed commitment to advocacy and a desire to bring even greater value to members. This led them to make a strategic decision to invest in a full-time executive director. I am truly excited and honored to share that Abby S. Cowart, an experienced veteran of the shareholder services and investor relations industries, has been named as the organization’s first-ever executive director. Abby is a former Board member and current SSA member. She believes in the mission of SSA and is committed to enhancing the member experience and maximizing the value of the organization to the members and the industry.
