Boston Securities Traders Association (BSTA) Cares
Partnering with Local Companies to Feed Homeless Veterans
The Boston Securities Traders Association (BSTA) is proud to announce that along with Drexel Hamilton and b.good restaurants provided dinner for over 200 homeless veterans at the New England Center for Homeless Veterans (NECHV) on Wednesday, August 26, 2015. The BSTA is a financial industry group of over 700 members that consist of traders, vendors, analysts and other financial professionals. The BSTA has worked with many local charities over the years and this year have partnered with NECHV to help out these very special men and women who have served our country and need our help.
Drexel Hamilton was an obvious choice for our first Veterans Dinner. Drexel Hamilton is a service-disabled veteran owned firm that provides training, licensing and meaningful employment opportunities to service-disabled veterans who are interested in entering the financial industry. We are very excited to start this Veteran Dinner program with Drexel Hamilton as our sole sponsor. Their Boston office is led by Boston trader Rick Gill, who is a former BSTA president (2001) and board member for many years and Michael Melignano. We expect to have other Drexel Hamilton management as well in Boston to help serve our Veterans.
b.good is a local healthy fast food restaurant that does amazing charitable work and serves some of the tastiest food in the city. They were another great choice given their hometown roots and their charitable ways. Committed to serving “real” food, b.good believes that means showing customers how food is made, what’s in it, and where it comes from. Through their foundation, b.good donates quarterly micro-grants to inspired local folks who want to make a difference in our city. Meanwhile, b.good also forges partnerships with local schools to bring real food to kids who may not always have access to it.

Why Join The BSTA?
The Boston Securities Traders Association has been representing the local trading community since 1936. At the BSTA, we pride ourselves on being one of the largest memberships in the country which allows us to be well represented in both the National STA and in Washington, DC. Maintaining a strong presence requires the Boston trading community to be actively involved with the association. For that reason, we are eagerly seeking new members and want to highlight just a few of the benefits of BSTA membership:
- Education: The BSTA holds various events throughout the year that are free to all members. Over the past few years the BSTA has hosted events such as Technical Analysis 101, New Rules and Regulations effecting our Industry, HFT & ETF Panels, Option workshops, and more.
- Charity: The BSTA takes an active role in supporting multiple local charities and seeks out opportunities to give back to the community. Last year we were financially and physically involved in events with Habitat for Humanity, the Shattuck Shelter, Cotting School and Haymakers for Hope.
- Networking: The BSTA hosts several social events each year. All of the events are well attended, provide excellent networking opportunities, and many have become annual traditions that are not to be missed.
All ‘Associate’ and ‘General’ members have the opportunity to participate in these types of events as well as take advantage of the many other benefits membership provides. We believe that our association enables its members to grow both personally and professionally through a variety of offered activities.
