WASHINGTON (January 11, 2005) –The North American Securities Administrators Association (NASAA) today launched its newly redesigned website to better inform the public, policymakers, regulators, and industry about the role NASAA members serve in protecting investors throughout North America.
“Through the new NASAA website, we are pleased to provide users with easier access to new resources and a wealth of information about investor protection and the importance of state and provincial securities regulation,” said NASAA President and New Jersey Securities Bureau Chief Franklin L. Widmann.
The new website remains located at www.nasaa.org, but has a different look and feel than the previous version. The website is organized in five major navigation categories, each designed to allow users to find relevant information quickly and efficiently. The sections are:
- About NASAA, which contains links to NASAA historical information, Board and Section listings, as well as staff contact information.
- Investor Education, which contains a series of resources for investors, including the Senior Investor Resource Center, Investor Alerts and an investor awareness quiz.
- Issues & Answers, which contains legislative, regulatory and legal comment letters, testimony, correspondence and related resources.
- NASAA Newsroom, which includes current and archived news releases, speeches, and news from NASAA members.
- Industry & Regulatory Resources, which contains information for broker-dealers and investment advisers, including exam resources; as well as corporation finance-related material, CRD and IARD resources, forms, and a directory of securities laws and regulations of NASAA Member jurisdictions.
In addition to improved navigation, the new website includes a search function that allows users to use key words to find relevant information and a “Quicklinks” toolbar that will, among other things, allow users to efficiently locate contact information for NASAA members.
NASAA is the oldest international organization devoted to investor protection. Its membership consists of the securities administrators in the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Canada, and Mexico.
