Shareholder Services Association (SSA) has joined the Holders Coalition. 

The Holders Coalition ("Coalition") represents institutions whose members hold or represent owners of property. The Coalition was initially formed to assist the Uniform Law Commission ("ULC") develop and approve the Revised Uniform Unclaimed Property Act of 2016 ("RUUPA 2016"). Throughout the multi-year process, the members of the Coalition earnestly worked with the ULC's Drafting Committee and other participating stakeholders to develop the RUUPA 2016, sharing valuable testimony, insight, and expertise on legal, regulatory, technical, and operational matters. With the adoption of the RUUPA 2016 by the ULC, the Coalition continues to work together to address common issues impacting the owners of property. 

Other groups participating in the Holders Coalition include SIFMA, ICI, STA, UPPO, ACLI and the US Chamber of Commerce, as well as many others. 

Recently the Holders Coalition had the opportunity to comment on the proposed rules seeking to implement the Illinois Revised Uniform Unclaimed Property Act (765 ILCS 1026) as adopted by the General Assembly through Public Acts 100-22 and 100-566.

SSA was a co-signer on the letter which can be accessed here.

What I like most about being a SSA member.

SSA President's September Letter

Hello SSA Members,

The SSA Board of Directors held our annual strategic planning meeting for the upcoming year.  The Board accepted Bernadette Maffei’s resignation as she transitions to her new career, subsequently, my planned presidency was advanced to serve as the SSA President for 2018-2019 and I look forward to delivering the plan that we developed together.

The Board also elected Mark Gereb of Verizon Communications Inc. as the Vice President.  I am excited to have Mark’s support and am looking forward to working with him.  

I look forward to continuing the leadership and direction to fulfill the mission of the SSA.  As we continue to focus on our strategic goals, I am confident that together we will remain committed to addressing the challenges that face our industry today as well for the future.

As always, we continue to look for ways to improve and grow the SSA Organization.  Please do not hesitate to reach out to me or any of the Board members with any questions or suggestions you may have.

Finally, I am deeply grateful to my predecessor, Bernadette Maffei, for her leadership and outstanding contributions to the SSA during her presidency. I want to wish her the best of luck in her new career adventure.

To our members, a big thank you for your continued support of our Association and we look forward to seeing you at upcoming events as well as your participation on our committees.
 
 
Respectfully,

Kim Hanlon
