Upcoming Board Meeting


Robert W. Cook, FINRA President and CEO


FINRA Member Firms


Tuesday, July 16, 2019

This week, the FINRA Board of Governors will meet in Washington, DC. In lieu of our standard FINRA Board meeting—which typically includes a full schedule of committee meetings and a review of rule proposals—this meeting will instead revolve around a series of strategic planning discussions. Select topics include the SEC's Regulation Best Interest, our long-term financial planning, and challenges facing small firms.

Because this meeting will be the last for four public governors—Leslie Seidman, Shelly Lazarus, Brigitte Madrian and Luis Viceira—the Nominating and Governance Committee of the Board is scheduled to meet to continue discussions around the important task of appointing their successors.

More information regarding the Board's operations, including the membership and responsibilities of its committees, is available on FINRA's governance page at
