WFIC is Almost Here


FISD has announced the schedule for the 2017 World Financial Information Conference taking place September 24-27 in Barcelona. WFIC is the only global event that focuses exclusively on issues associated with dissemination, management and use of financial information.  

Due to high demand, WFIC 2015 was only open to members and we expect to carry that policy forward for WFIC 2017. In order to attend, your membership must be active at least through September 27, 2017. Contact Tracey Shumpert for more information or to make sure you're eligible. WFIC is less than a year away, so now is the time to join FISD to ensure that you're eligible for the conference.

  • FISD Regular Members: $1,900 USD
  • FISD Consumer Firm Members: $500 USD

FISD Dues Scale to Increase by 5% on January 1, 2018
In June 2017, the Board of SIIA (FISD’s parent organization) approved an across-the-board 5% increase in the SIIA dues scale.  This dues increase is the first in approximately 20 years and will affect FISD members with membership terms ending December 31, 2017 and later.  After consultation with the member leadership of the SIIA’s divisions (including the FISD Executive Committee), the SIIA Board undertook these changes as part of a comprehensive package of expense cuts and revenue increases that will provide for the continued financial health of the SIIA and its divisions.  The revised dues scale can be viewed here.  FISD asks that you consider these changes as you plan your budgets for 2018 and beyond.  While price increases are never popular, FISD management believes that this increase will enable FISD to maintain and increase its level of support for its members in an increasingly expensive environment.   If you have any questions, or would like to discuss this, please contacts Tracey Shumpert.
