SEC Celebrates 75th Anniversary

On June 25, 2009 the SEC Historical Society hosted a dinner in honor of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission’s 75th anniversary. Close to 1,000 guests were in attendance, including current and former SEC chairmen, commissioners, staff and other dignitaries. SEC Chairman Mary L. Schapiro and others spoke at the event, we understand remarks and photos from the event will be posted on the newly redesigned SEC Historical Society website,, later this summer.

The June 25th dinner capped off a year of special programs hosted by the SEC Historical Society, including online 'fireside chats' and a series of special programs held at the SEC's regional offices in conjunction with the Association of SEC Alumni (ASECA); I enjoyed attending the program at the SEC's New York Regional Office in May. The SEC Historical Society, founded as a virtual museum and archive to preserve the SEC's history, is celebrating its own 10th anniversary this year.

FEI was among a number of professional associations and firms in attendance at the June 25th dinner honoring the SEC's 75th anniversary; leadership representing FEI's global headquarters, FEI’s Washington D.C. chapter, and FEI's Committee on Corporate Reporting are pictured here.

Interesting that all the folks in the FEI picture are women. Quite a change from 75 years ago....
