FISD NY Issue Brief – October 14 – In-Person

October 14 @ 3:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Thursday, October 14

Presentation 

This event is open to members only.  If you are interested in becoming a member, please contact Tracey Shumpert.

Join FISD at its first in-person event in New York in 2021.  Our program will highlight thought leadership and member insights from prominent members and industry experts.  After the program, catch up (in person) with your colleagues and make new contacts.

FISD takes COVID-19 very seriously. In keeping with New York City’s “Key to NYC Pass”, the venue will require attendees to provide proof of vaccination onsite and request the wearing of masks when seated in the auditorium listening to speakers. As much as possible, we will be spacing seating so that there is more distance between seats.  FISD will comply with local and national government rules – and the rules/policies of the venue.  We plan to organize the networking element of this event to create an environment that enables a high degree of individual choice, with both indoor and outdoor space.
