In recognition of the outstanding contributions of members of the futures and options community, I am pleased to announce that the Futures Industry Association has established a Futures Hall of Fame.
As we celebrate our 50th anniversary it is fitting that the FIA institute this Hall of Fame to celebrate the accomplishments and recognize the significant contributions individuals have made to the futures and options industry. I have no doubt that the next 50 years will bring as many changes to our industry as the last 50, but one thing will remain constant—our respect and gratitude to the individuals who laid the foundation for our extraordinary success.
It is important that the people who lead this industry today understand the contributions made by those who came before them. We are benefiting from the ground they broke, and the programs and policies they put in place.
Please join with us in celebrating the legacy the men and women who share this honor leave behind. Congratulations and our heartfelt thanks to the 2005 FIA Futures Hall of Fame honorees.
