NIRI San Francisco Announces Board Officers and Directors for the 2021-2022 Fiscal Year

SAN FRANCISCO--()--The San Francisco Chapter of the National Investor Relations Institute (NIRI SF) today announced that its members have elected 15 officers and directors to its board for the twelve-month term, effective July 19, 2021.

In fiscal 2021, the NIRI San Francisco board leveraged the power of collaboration across the entire NIRI national organization to execute its key initiatives. While navigating the uncertainty of the pandemic, the board quickly shifted to leverage technology to deliver relevant and timely learning opportunities to its members such as webcasts featuring IPO Market Trends and How to Build your Brand with LinkedIn. The San Francisco board partnered with Silicon Valley, San Diego, L.A., and several other chapters to offer broad networking opportunities enabling members to connect with IR professionals within and beyond the Bay Area.

The San Francisco board also supported NIRI’s advocacy efforts in Washington, which influenced proposed regulatory changes at the SEC. The San Francisco chapter was one of eleven NIRI chapters to submit a comment letter to the SEC in response to proposed amendments to its 13F disclosure rules. NIRI, at the national and chapter levels, played a significant role within a larger ecosystem of respondents across several business groups, associations, and 250 individual corporations that represented a combined market cap of nearly $3 trillion. As a result of these efforts, the SEC listened to the overwhelming opposition to their proposal and in October, it was reported that the SEC planned to withdraw the proposal.

“Our accomplishments in a year marked by the pandemic reflect not only the strength of the Board, but more importantly, the strength of the entire NIRI organization and the power of collaboration within and across local chapters. Looking ahead, we remain more focused than ever on cultivating a welcoming professional community that enables our members to grow in their careers. We will continue to deliver valuable learning and development opportunities virtually, hoping to return to in-person networking events by the end of 2021. Our newly formed diversity and inclusion committee will play an essential role, identifying ways for us to support increased diversity within the IR profession,” said Lisa M. Hartman, president, NIRI San Francisco.
