"What a privilege it was for me to be entrusted to preside over the 31st annual conference for the Securities Expert Roundtable (SER) in Boston. This year, we focused on member-to-member engagement and networking, hands-on workshops to enhance member competencies and presentations from impressive talent from the academia, legal and regulatory fields. Our keynote speaker touched on family, patriotism, respect and leadership under stress. With much appreciation, I want to thank all Guest Speakers, Members Speakers and all Attendees who joined us this year!"
