The FIA FUTURES HALL OF FAME celebrates the accomplishments and recognizes the significant contributions individuals have made to the futures and options industry. The newest inductees were announced at a special breakfast ceremony on Thursday, March 16.

Since its establishment in 2005, FIA has recognized the outstanding contributions of 130 members of the futures and options community. These inductees have earned respect and gratitude of futures market participants for laying the foundation for the extraordinary success of our industry, from groundbreaking innovations to processes, programs and policies they have put into play. CONGRATULATIONS to the 2017 inductees!

Boca 2017 offers two great opportunities to give back during this year's conference. FIA, along with our generous sponsors, are hosting two charity sporting events. Proceeds from both events will benefit FUTURES FOR KIDS, an organization that supports children's charities around the world through private events and donations. Start your conference week on Tuesday morning at the FIA Boca Tennis Tournament, sponsored by Trading Technologies. And, wrap up your Boca week on St. Patrick’s Day with the 3rd Annual FIA Charity Golf Event, sponsored by UBS.
