Dear OSTA Sponsors and Friends,

On behalf of the 2015 OSTA Board, we hope you are having a wonderful beginning to 2015.  The closing of the first quarter of the year always signals the beginning of the OSTA’s sponsorship drive and our “regional round-table”, which was held in Columbus on April 23, 2015.  Our annual 2015 Sponsorship Drive is in midstream, and the OSTA Board would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support of our affiliate in the past, and ask your support for 2015.  Please finalize 2015 sponsorship details before June 15th to be included in the sponsorship printed materials/signage that will be used at all meetings until the 2016 Spring regional meeting in Cincinnati

 

The OSTA has been very fortunate for the wonderful generosity of our sponsors and your continued support.  We appreciate your largesse and Thank You.  At our three OSTA annual events, we are keenly focused on delivering the audience to our sponsors and the content to our members that we feel is beneficial and a valuable use of sponsor’s time and resources.  We encourage you to reach out to Board of the OSTA if you have any suggestions on how we can bolster our partnership because as we have previously mentioned, sponsors are the lifeblood of the OSTA and we want them to always feel their time is well-spent.  Additionally, please contact an OSTA Board member if you or anyone at your firm is interested in the opportunity to speak at any of our events

 

In 2014, our regional event in Cincinnati was held on the Thursday following the 60 Minutes airing of Michael Lewis’ highly controversial interview, and release of his book Flash Boys.  We were very fortunate to have Craig Viani from ConvergEx give an informed and timely presentation on U.S. Market Structure with some vague comments on the 60 Minutes episode and some of the reporting.  For our annual Summer Outing in July, we had Jay Fraser from IEX provide additional insight on the IEX business model and exchange.  He was able to get a bit more granular during his discussion and speak to how IEX plans to operate in the current marketplace.  Then, Jim Toes, STA President & CEO provided STA updates.

 

We began 2015 with our well attended Spring Regional event in Columbus April 23th at Gordon Biersch Beer Company (www.gordonbiersch.com).  The TCA group discussion was helpful to all.

We will present the  2015 Summer Outing in Cleveland on Thursday, June 18, 2015 (dinner) and Friday, June 19, 2015 (golf).  Thursday evening will include; Guest Speaker, Cocktail Hour, Dinner/Speaker, and Casino Night, and Charity Raffle (with all raffle proceeds going to the Season of Giving designated charity).  Our annual Golf Outing will be held on Friday, June 19th   at the Mayfield Country Club.  Our guest speaker will be, retired Navy SEAL Lt. Jason Redman, an Ohio native, who was unable to make it in for the 2014 event due to a flight cancellation.  Lt. (Ret.) Redman Jason confirmed that he will be our keynote speaker for 2015.  You can learn more about Jason in his memoir, The Trident – The Forging and Reforging of a Navy SEAL Leader. Please register for the summer event by classification Member, Sponsor, & non-member Guest (as group or single) at “Summer Registration Link”
