WHY JOIN?

The Boston Securities Traders Association has been representing the local trading community since 1936. At the BSTA, we pride ourselves on being the largest membership 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 in addition to our charitable work:

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.

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.

We firmly believe that our association enables its members to grow both personally and professionally through a variety of offered activities.
