The Futures Industry Association announced last week that Barbara Wierzynski would relinquish her role as general counsel at the end of this year after serving 20 years in the position, and 28 years at the FIA overall. For those of us who have had the pleasure of working with Barbara for most of her time with FIA, we will miss her intellect, passion, humor, and heartfelt commitment to helping shape relevant regulation not only to benefit members of FIA, but all users of exchange-traded derivatives. Barbara’s contributions will long be appreciated. Thank you to the cornhusker state for lending us Barbara for all these years!
