Amid continued public health concerns around the spread of COVID-19, STANY’s main priority is the health and safety of our members, guests, sponsors, and partners. In light of this, we have decided to postpone the 84th Annual STANY Conference, which had been scheduled for Wednesday, April 15. We apologize for any inconvenience and look forward to greeting you at our event when rescheduled. We will notify you when a new date is selected and will work with all our sponsors and speakers to host a solid and exciting conference.

 Look for future announcements and please, be safe and healthy!

The premier event on STANY's calendar, the 84th  Annual Markets Conference & Reception will feature thought-provoking panels and speakers, opportunities to network and make meaningful business connections in the securities and financial services industry and raise money for STANY’s 2020 President’s Choice Charity- Wall Street Rides FAR for Autism Research. Join us for a full day of content kicked off by our Women in Finance Breakfast and culminating in a 3 hour cocktail party.
